Suspension Training Equipment: Benefits and Product Guide
Types of Suspension Training Equipment
While all suspension trainers are similar, there are a few differences worth noting, says Jennifer Novak, a personal trainer and owner of . Namely, some suspension trainers have a single, convergent attachment point, and some have separate, adjustable attachments.
A TRX suspension trainer is a good example of a single, convergent attachment point, while gymnastics rings or a would be an example of equipment where each strap has its own attachment point. "Single attachment suspension trainers create resultant force, changing the intensity and sometimes the challenge to the joints," Novak says. "For example, when doing a suspension pushup exercise, the single attachment places a force vector pulling the wrist, elbow, and shoulder joints inward, toward the attachment. The broader the shoulder girth of the user, the more dramatic this resultant vector inward would be. At different levels of elbow and wrist flexion, this could present uneven joint compression or translation/shear, depending on the baseline stability of those joints and the strength of the surrounding muscle." This is a factor to keep in mind, especially if you're new to suspension training or have weak shoulders.
On the other hand, Novak explains that suspension trainers with two separate attachment points allow for a more customized workout. "The attachments can be adjusted to accommodate shoulder girth, and even manipulated if a more extreme force angle is desired. Either way, the emphasis can be changed to fit the desired muscles of emphasis and the size of the person using it," Novak says.
For most users, neither system is "better" or "worse," but they aredifferent. For instance, it's impossible to do a true pull-up or dip on a TRX trainer because when your body is perpendicular to the ground, both handles hang straight down. You can't position the handles at hip or shoulder-width to facilitate the exercise. Conversely, itispossible to do dips and pull-ups on suspension trainers with two separate attachment points because you can position the attachments wide enough to allow your body to move vertically between the equipment's handles.
