Course: #2636Level: Intermediate3 Hours
Suspension exercise has been a way for athletes to train when away from a gym, most notably TRX developer Randy Hetrick, former Navy Seal Commander. There are many different types of suspension systems for use with multiple populations. This type of body weight suspension training activates the core, shifts the center of gravity, and focuses on both mobility and stability. Translating these exercises to the aquatic environment lightens the load, and makes them accessible to a larger patient population, and older adults who need strength and balance recovery. Pilates spring resistance exercises activate core strength and whole body in the lean out from the anchor in facing front, side, and back. In addition to the anchored suspension training systems, we introduce the concepts from the aerial world of suspension in an open kinetic chain using balance, stabilization and mobilization exercises.
