The mobile gym
Sling trainers might seem simple at first but don’t let that fool you: they offer a versatile and effective training ranging from full body exercises to isolation exercises. Everything you need is a suspension point and your own bodyweight. With a sling trainer you always have a complete gym at hand.
The sling trainer concept
A sling trainer is a training tool for bodyweight training that helps you optimally adjust your training resistance – i.e. your bodyweight – in every exercise. To illustrate this principle think of a rowing movement. You pull your body up until your chest is at the same height of your hold point. The more horizontal you position yourself the bigger the portion of your bodyweight becomes that you have to lift in every repetition. With a sling trainer you can choose the angle of your position inch-perfectly so you always have the right training resistance for your workout. This principle can be applied to every sling trainer exercise.
Effective full body training with the sling trainer
Sling training doesn’t train isolated muscles individually but several muscles in combination. This is not only closer to real-life demands but also more effective. You don’t simply train more structures at the same time, you also improve inter- and intra-muscular coordination. The straps don’t offer stable hold, especially your deeper-lying musculature has to work more to keep a steady position. This improves the interplay of muscle groups, your body can work more efficiently, and you significantly improve your body perception. A positive side effect: you burn more calories in short workouts of 30 to 45 minutes than when training isolated muscles.
