You're looking for solutions..
As a trainer, or someone who just loves to exercise, you always put in the effort to record and track your progress in the weight that is lifted, the distance you run and other measurables,
But there is one major style of training that does not have a reliable way of determining intensity or monitoring progress: suspension exercises.
How do you measure and track the intensity of suspension exercises in a consistent and reliable way? Let's look at the factors...
Standing Suspension Exercises
You need to know the distance between your feet and where the straps are hanging from. The closer your feet are, the harder the exercise.
But how do you know that distance?
Just as important to know is the further your hands/shoulders are from the attachment, the harder the exercise.
Where would I get that information?
The best solution is the Tyger Mat, because it is the only mat that has all of these great features:
To setup the Tyger Mat properly, all you have to do is make sure the "ears" of the Tyger Logo are directly under where the straps or bands are hanging from.
-The distance that a person travels each line is 4 inches (or 10cm).
-They are also consistent with scientific studies that used distance to measure and adjust resistance.
-They make the intensities of Tyger Mat easily translatable for every country.
For Example: Line 10 = 40 in./100 cm; Line 9 = 36 in./90 cm
The "Spots" and Numbers
Feet/Hands on the Numbers
The widest and most stable width of support, which is 2 feet wide.
...or on the Outer Dots,
Narrowing the base of support to 1 foot will increase the amount of instability your body will encounter.
...or on one foot (and centered)!
You could put your feet together in the center or have only 1 foot on the Center Dot and really challenge yourself while maintaining great posture and performing the suspension exercise!
For standing suspension exercises, one study found that every 4 inches/10 cm can be the equivalent to 8-10 pounds of resistance.
Even with your feet in the handles, the measurements for intensity of every exercise will be exact!

We really love these mats! We have been able to add some great variables into our TRX classes. They are also very popular in our yoga classes. The quality is amazing!
Been using the Tyger Mat for one year and a half and it still looks brand new. Great quality and extremely helpful for any TRX lover. I honestly recommend it!! :)
The Tyger Mat has come in so handy for so many different exercises that I do. I use it for myself and for my training clients. We do TRX and use it for lunges and squats with the 45 lb bar and it is great because it gives us guidance on where exactly to stand for best results.
I highly recommend this mat for anyone. It is a great anti-slip mat!❤️❤️
I purchased my Tyger Mat to improve my TRX workouts. It takes the guessing out of feet placements and means I now have a measurable way of viewing my progress. Expensive but well worth it.
Love my mat It helps me see my progress as to how far I can position me feet
without bein afraid that I'm goin to fall. AND it doesn't move, most important, when I do
my side lunges, or jumping..Perfect-a-mundo :)
