If we had to pick our favorite exercises, they might all come from this list. You'll see what happens when you add elastic resistance to the Stationary March. One thing is for sure. You'll never do another situp again.
Speed Coaches and Physical Therapists all recommend elastic resistance as one of the best ways to increase strength and speed. Resistance Knee Raises focus elastic resistance like a laser beam on your Lower Abdominals, Hip Flexors and Hamstrings. These are critical core muscles used for running.
And how about Ring Push Ups? Using the Dip Machine and Push Up Rings to free your hands from the ground adds at least half a dozen new muscles to what was already a full body exercise.
