Strap training enables you to use your own body weight when you’re working out while intensifying your body building exercises and making them more effective. We’ve put together a few video exercises produced and commentated in partnership with Domyos Club sports coaches to help you get a better understanding. Work-out your triceps, pectorals and shoulders while toning your abs/core continuously.


Safety Tips

– Keep your back straight during all the exercises. Do this by focusing on a specific point that enables you to keep your vertebrae well aligned.

– In addition, slow down your return movements to avoid treating your joints roughly, and keep your abs/core toned continuously.

– Check that the Strap Training is attached correctly so that it can bear the weight of your body.

– An effective work-out session should last a total of between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on your level. The main aim of these exercises is to increase your muscular endurance. Work on them in blocks, enabling you to alternate the muscles used.

– The more your balance is precarious, the more effort will be required. It is up to you to put yourself at the right distance, according to your level.

– The straps should always be taut during the exercises.
