The Best Suspension Trainer Workout

Get stronger all over with this three-move full body workout.

101 Best Workouts Of All Time is the ultimate answer to the question "What workout should I do?" No matter what equipment you have available, from a fully-stocked supergym to a pair of mismatched dumbbells in your garage, or nothing but your body weight alone, you can build muscle, lose fat, and sculpt the physique you've always wanted.

A suspension trainer, such as the TRX or Jungle Gym XT, can mean the difference between sticking with your training while on the road and returning from your travels feeling slobbish. So long as your suspension trainer is fully adjustable and offers foot cradles you’ll have a total-body gym that you can unpack from your suitcase whenever, wherever. 

The kind of instability a suspension trainer provides is ideal for core strengthening. To increase the instability, we’ve designed this workout using unilateral exercises, meaning that you’ll be training each side of your body individually. If you need to reduce the intensity of an exercise, simply increase the angle of your body to the floor (shorten the length of the handles/ straps). The workout at right lets you customize your training, giving you a specific period of time in which to do your reps, rather than a concrete number of reps to hit every set.


Perform the exercises as a circuit, completing one set of each in sequence. Do as many reps as you can in 30 seconds, resting only as long as it takes to set up the next exercise. Perform two to four circuits.
