Most of the gyms have this training straps as they are really good for body weight exercises. I’m quite familiar with it and thought it would be perfect for my outdoor training.
I love obstacle course races and currently training for one. I was testing the DOMYOS Cross-Training Strap from DECATHLON during my training sessions in Primrose Hill, London.

I used a pole in the outdoor gym to attach the strap. Looking at the picture above, the middle strap goes around the pole or a tree. Then I clip in the strap with the two handle.
Use the strap with the two handle attached and place it thought the door as shown in the instructions below.
The packaging shows you plenty of exercises and also how to attach the straps securely.
I had so much fun with my friend in the park. We were taking turns and tried mainly upper body exercises which I definitely need to do for my upcoming race. The product feels the same like the one I’m used to in the gym.
