These three jumping exercises are examples of training while having a force driving you around a pivot. We use a form of suspension strap, to provide this. In our exercises we choose TruFit to provide the pivot point.
The three suspension training exercises revolve around jumping and pushing. These movement exercises move the direction of resistance on the body during motion. These exercises provide great core workout. Using suspension exercises to build skill, is something that helps develop all clients from athletes to person from next door.
Exercise 1 Jump Wide and Narrow and Push Forward
This exercise keeps challenging the clients base of support on landing, while asking the core to be simultaneously increasing force and reducing force!
Exercise 2 Jumping on the Spot with Press
This is an amazing exercise for improving extension through the thoracic spine, in a jump. The suspension strap moves through a circular plane to drive the hands away from the body during the jump. This drives a thoracic extension in the Jump.
Exercise 3 Jumping wide with a narrow push
What is great about this exercise, is that it introduces the frontal plane to the motion of jumping. This helps with a new challenge to the core and also carries over to combat situations in sport, in the air.
