Top Picks for Upper Body Conditioning and Core Strength
1. Suspended Side Plank: Lower suspension cables so they hover about 12-14 inches off the floor. Using your forearms for support, place your feet into the suspended cables. Move your upper body into a push-up position. Gradually rotate (spiral) to one side. Hold position for a few seconds and repeat on the other side. You can alternate repetitions between each side or perform multiple sets (8-10 reps each) on one side before switching to the other side.
2. Angled Push-Up on One Leg: Raise suspension cables to armpit height or above. Grasp the cable handles and move forward into a leaning position. The greater the lean, the harder the exercise. Lift one leg keep it elevated throughout the duration of your set. Perform 12-15 push-ups, or as many as needed to reach a state of momentary muscle fatigue without losing your form.
