Suspension Trainer Update (Slipping Straps)

Below is a brief update to the previous suspension trainer tutorial that I posted in February.  Since posting the original, I’ve had several questions come through about straps that were slipping through the cam-buckles.  If you have dealt with a similar problem, you will find what is often a simple solution.

    Ross, what do you think about ratchet tie downs instead of cam buckle? are they also suitable? In the UK the stronger tie downs tend to be ratchet.

    I’ve used many cam straps for workouts and at work. I’ve had hardware store cam buckles slip. I have had a lot of luck with 1″ polyester straps. Never slips and inexpensive. I cannot recommend them more. Awesome customer service. I am only a customer of theirs, no other affiliation whatsoever.

    The ratchet tie down would work but would be more time consuming.

    Ross, brilliant vids – thanks for inspiration! Picked a few ideas for my own and my clients’ training.
    One question: how on earth do I bring myself to starting position with arm stand strap pushup (as seen at 7:47 of original tutorial)? All the best
