I thought today I would try mixing things up a bit. I am combining Barbell Exercises and Training While Suspended. Barbells are the traditional training tool that can be used in many ways. In traditional and Olympic Lifts, they work as the ultimate in gravity enhancers. Barbells rolling property then they can change gravity reactions while creating momentum. As a long level or asymmetrically loaded training tool then the barbell is great for momentum. Training while Suspended Training while suspended can both assist and resist gravity.  Moving while moving the straps can cause a swing like momentum.  Hanging up a leg can change the way the body gets to react to the floor. All exercises become core specific and a challenge to stability. The goal is to have muscles react a little faster to a changes in movements switching form Barbell to Suspension.  The first couple sets for me will not go very quickly!  The workout has weight training, body weight training, balance and stability.
