About two years ago, I did a video walk-thru for an intense TRX workout called, “Metabolic Drive” for Craig Ballantyne and his TT readers.
All I did were a few reps of each exercise and my abs were so sore the next day… unbelievable (and that was just doing demos).
But it makes sense – you work MORE ab muscles using ANY suspension trainer when doing just about any exercise.
Think about it – do a bicep curl with any suspension system. Then feel your abs as you go through the movement. Crazy, right? Just be sure to keep your upper body straight – imagine an inverted row but bending your elbows as you come up.
You’re going to love this ab superset, too. But be warned, your abs will probably be sore tomorrow.
It starts with your feet in the straps of any suspension system and performing mountain climbers (slow pace and keep those abs braced!).
Now I know it sounds so simple. Mountain climbers, really?. Big deal. But wait until you try it, especially when paired with a weird suspension Ab move, the kneeling Ab Fallout.
It’s a brilliant combo. The first exercise forces stabilization and contraction from the bottom up, while the second demands incredible core strength and then hits you with contraction from the top down. It’s the ultimate ab superset, and practically impossible to replicate without a Suspension trainer.
Add this Ab Superset to the end of your next workout:A) Strap Mountain Climber – 30 seconds B) Strap Ab Fallout (kneeling) – 60 seconds – Rest 30 seconds and repeat two more times.
Sizzle, sizzle. Mmmm, smells like abs getting smoked. Gross.
Now you can do these with any suspension trainer. The Ab Fallout is when you are in the kneeling position and your hands are in the straps. Literally “fall” forward as you extend your arms out until you feel a stretch in your abdominal wall, keeping your body in a straight line.
But don’t get me wrong, suspension trainers like the TRX or Jungle Gym straps (you can use either for the superset) are not just core training devices.
In fact, there are literally 191 exercises that you can do to get ripped and even build muscle, practically anytime, anywhere. And celebrity trainer and TRX authority Dan Long shows you how here:
