A simple suspension trainer can really help you build muscle with bodyweight exercises. They can mimic nearly any classic gym exercise. They bring more progression and regression to any move, and they can help you set up a “gym” almost anywhere.
They can also open a pandora’s box of variety because you can do hundreds of movements on them. Over the years, I’ve learned that too much variety can inhibit muscle growth by watering down your workout. If you want to build muscle, focus on a handful of movements and master the f*ck out of them.
