Another question I received today:
Is suspension training with a pulley better?
Answer: fuck no. Circus training on a pulley is much worse than suspension training.
First off, suspension training is a trademark owned by TRX, and TRX doesn’t offer any products that include a pulley. So since there’s no such thing as suspension training with a pulley, let’s call it circus training on a pulley.
Now that we’re using the proper terminology, let’s address the question of which is better, suspension training or circus training on a pulley. The short answer is suspension training is much better than circus training on a pulley. For the long answer that goes into great detail about why suspension training is vastly superior to circus training on a pulley, read part 1 and part 2 of my posts on the TRX Suspension Trainer vs. War Machine/CrossCore180.
