sling trainers - buy high quality sling trainers from TOLYMP
This is not a toy from the world of love, but a piece of sports equipment that has been in use for several years. With the sling trainer you can effectively promote the whole body. Any muscle group can be used and the difficulty is often underestimated. It is very strenuous to use the own body weight by the sling trainer as training weight.
The Slingtrainer has been used in sports for ages. In addition, the sports equipment is now also used for the physiotherapeutic treatment of back pain. The studies conducted to date have not yet gained any clear insights into this issue. However, many users report a positive effect.
training principle of the sling trainer
The sling trainer is based on the training principle of instability. This is also an advantage over the classic gym. This is because stabilisation muscles are only promoted in the gym in very few cases. The motion executions on machines are already specified and only need to be executed.
When training with the sling trainer, the focus is not only on strengthening the muscles, but also on muscle coordination. This way you get to know your body better and develop a much stronger body awareness.
As soon as you get used to the instability and build up your muscles, you can also use deflection pulleys to continue to support and implement the training principle.
Additionally, the sling trainer is not necessarily intended for larger muscle groups. Rather, the small and deep muscle groups should be addressed, which is also hardly possible in typical strength training. Here you can also play with the training weight by changing the angle between body and floor.
Ferner the loop trainer can also be used very variably. For example, you can attach it to the ceiling, a branch or a pole. Many of our customers choose to mount our products on the bar because our gymnastics ideally suited.
What is a sling trainer?
This is a rubber padded loop attached to strong plastic straps. The installation is different, as you could read in the previous chapter. In order to be able to do exercises now, you put your arms and legs through the loops or you grab the bars to do push-ups for example.
This has two basic advantages:
You can do very strenuous exercises.
your joints will be relieved.
Why should you choose this training?
sling coaches can loosen up any training plan and provide variety. However, this is not an easy training, but intensive exercises that perfectly support strength training, calisthenics or crosstraining. The difficulty and intensity can be changed in different ways, so that the organism does not get used to the current training.
Suspension training is also recommended after injuries. After a knee operation, the leg must not be stressed for a longer period of time. The disadvantage of this is that the patient's musculature is permanently reduced, while the other leg continues to be strengthened. This can occur, for example, after a cruciate ligament rupture or a severe patellar tendon inflammation.
In order to build up muscles again, you can use the TRX Band to perform exercises such as knee bends or lunge steps. But not only that is a striking advantage, but also that you train stabilisation muscles. We have already mentioned this aspect briefly.
In the gym there are many machines that can be operated sitting down. However, this trains the trunk of the body only marginally. The stabilizing muscles are completely neglected. However, if you want to increase your productivity in the long term, you should also make effective use of them. One possibility would be the sling trainer.
To go a little deeper into the details, we would like to discuss isolated and integrated training for sport and fitness. Isolated training is known from typical bodybuilding. There one tries with purposeful exercises to promote individual muscle groups, so that these grow. But the integrated training has its origin in rehabilitation. Injuries as well as illnesses can thus be better put away.
This aspect will be discussed later.
Basic we can say here that dysbalances can be corrected. Because one is quasi on the search for the body center and must balance its center of gravity again and again anew. In contrast to the fitness studio, not only individual muscle groups, but whole muscle chains are used. Your deep muscles are thus subjected to extreme stress, which can prevent many injuries.
Who can loop training help?
sling training is extremely space-saving. If you have a garden with a tree, you can always hang your TRX band there. In addition, it is also very effective and provides many advantages - even in competitive sports. Athletes for whom musculature is particularly important should definitely sit on this fitness machine and buy a sling trainer.
Many customers are swimmers, handballists, footballers, fitness athletes or even bodybuilders. Actually there is everything and you can't narrow down the target group exactly. After all, the Sling-Trainer is now also used to treat back pain.
but a certain body tension is necessary for use. That's why you should have been active in advance before you go to the sling trainers.
sling trainer: assembly and installation
As already mentioned, the attachment to one of our sports equipment is best. However, the investment sum will then be slightly higher. However, if you are a sports enthusiast, you should not shy away from it. Health and sportiness are always important and how practical is a training station where you can do exercises with your own weight?
Ebenso children will find our gymnastic equipment class. After all, you can add a wall bar or something similar to this and create fun for the whole family. You yourself may pursue sporting goals and set an example to your children at home. Since more and more children of primary school age are overweight, this aspect is decisive for child development.
If this fixing option is not suitable, you can also use a door anchor. This article is clamped between door and frame and you can hang your sling trainer there. The fixing method is done in a few minutes, so you can take the Sling-Trainer with you on holiday to do your training.
All that matters is that you make sure that nobody opens the door. Because then the door anchor falls off and you crash to the floor. However, you cannot prevent such injuries.
In addition you can mount a solid steel plate on the wall. Whether it is the ceiling or not is relatively irrelevant. In this case, make sure that the wall has sufficient load-bearing capacity. Otherwise this could give way. This type of assembly takes considerably longer.
Information about the Sling-Trainer-Set - Advantages and Disadvantages
Although this is a solid product and we have already listed some advantages, there are also some disadvantages we need to discuss. Ultimately, you have to decide whether a suspension trainer is worthwhile for you or not. We cannot accept this decision.
One disadvantage is that it can be very hard for bloody beginners. Because a certain body tension is assumed. This can still be adjusted halfway through the angle, but the deflection pulleys make it much more difficult.
Beyond that you can't do sports fast one after the other. If another exercise is to be performed, the suspension trainer must first be reset. This takes a lot of time, so that it can be time consuming in some cases.
As already mentioned, this is only a useful addition to strength building and fitness as well as sports training. A lot of strength can be built up in the beginning, but the extent is limited at some point.
It's also more about a whole-body trainer, which provides for a certain fitness. If you have other or more ambitious goals, you should also go to the gym or purchase our Calisthenics and Crosstraining equipment. You should follow a uniform approach like Calisthenics and supplement it with the sling trainer.
On the other side there are many advantages. On the one hand, there is the price. Because a good and high-quality set costs only very little and already with this you can keep yourself fit and healthy. Those who do not pursue extreme goals will be fully served by a sling trainer.
further you can train muscle groups you would never reach in the gym. The Suspension TRX Band is essential for a really fit and strong organism. In addition, postural damage is prevented because the postural muscles are strained. In TRX sports this is much more the case than in other sports.
As you saw at the chapter regarding the installation, you can take the article with you on vacation or transport it quite simply. At the same time, you can perform countless movements and address many muscle groups.
To raise the training level, you don't have to use any weight and thus strain your joints, but can simply change the angle between body and floor.
Lower Body Exercises are much more comfortable and effective due to the rubber. In addition, muscle endurance and strength endurance are primarily promoted. If you need to promote your cardiovascular system, you can do it perfectly with this. Your current fitness level does not matter.
intermediate conclusion on the drawbacks and advantages
The sling trainer is actually perfect for a home workout as well as for the gym. This is because not only the muscle group is promoted, but also the entire body stability and coordination. However, the sling trainer should not be regarded as the sole training device, but should be used as a supplement.
You learn to consciously control and use your organism. Unlike many other machines in the gym, you develop much more body awareness. Finally, you strengthen your entire trunk and deep muscles and thus improve your overall performance.
but not only for sports enthusiasts it is extremely helpful and complementary, but also for formerly injured persons. If you take a closer look at the monthly costs of a gym (fees and effort), the decision is often much easier.

extensions or products with or without pulley? Where are the differences?
already at the beginning of this article we have mentioned some pulleys. In principle, this makes the workout much more demanding and you can increase the intensity. However, we want to cover this topic again in detail, so that everyone knows what to expect.
If you decide for a sling trainer without pulley, you should still be a beginner, if you decide for a sling trainer without pulley, you should still be a beginner. They have much more stability during the movements, which makes the training easier in the beginning. There is also a cost aspect. Without pulley it is much cheaper and the ropes and belts last longer.
If you want a sling trainer with a pulley, you have an advanced product. Due to the higher instability, you also have to have more body tension and use significantly more strength for it. Users tell us that the intensity is almost infinitely adjustable.
How does the 2018 application look in practice?
Since there are always many confusing instructions to be found on the internet, let's be a little more concrete and structured here. If you are already advanced, you can safely skip this chapter.
initially a work-out takes about 20-30 minutes. Your entire organism is then stressed and challenged. However, you should not overexert yourself under any circumstances, but rather slowly accustom your passive musculoskeletal system to the strain. In the long run you can demand more and more from your organism.
A training exercise always lasts between 2-5 minutes. That depends on whether you make the movements on time or on repetitions. If you concentrate on time, you primarily promote your strength endurance. For the repetitions it is the total strength.
As a training hint we would like to point out again the correct execution. You can get a complete training plan from the linked blog post. You should also pay attention to the quality of the ropes, straps and loops. Therefore, we cannot recommend that you build the Slingtrainer yourself. It would simply be too dangerous.
Basic enough for beginners to pause. Muscle groups do not grow while you train them, but while you give them rest after exercise. Since your body is not yet used to such a strain and even the deep muscles are strained, you should pause for about 48-72 hours and do not exercise the strained muscle group again in this regeneration period.
If you are already active in sports, you can set your own level. All you have to do is answer the following questions for yourself.
How fit are you?
How often and how regularly do I do sports? Do I sweat during exertion?
Which injuries have I had and which movements can I still feel?
Which goal do I pursue?
How much time do I have at all?
Who is honest to himself here will often be disappointed by his own performance. However, a start is always possible and not only at the beginning of the year. Adjust your expectations accordingly and do not overtax yourself.
