What is Suspension Training
Suspension training is a method of resistance fitness training that uses a system of ropes or straps to allow users to work against their own body weight using a variety of multi-planar, compound exercise movements that develop strength, balance, flexibility, and joint stability simultaneously.
Suspension Training, the TRX suspension equipment, and the associated exercises were developed in the 1990s by Randy Hetrick, a former Navy Seal and Stanford MBA graduate; he began marketing them in 2005.
A rival product, Inkaflexx, was developed about the same time by Kurt Dasbach, a former professional soccer player in Chile. While he was playing in South America, he discovered an ancient Andean conditioning system that use suspension ropes and he developed InkaFlexx based upon it.
