COURSE DESCRIPTION: 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. 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.



1)  Describe three versions of the suspension technique push up.

2)  Determine the squat-to-stand progression from assisted into the suspension cords squat up to V reach overhead for the posterior chain.

3)  Name the stabilization muscle recruitment necessary in a front punch arm variation.
