Hanging Around

Simple, effective bodyweight exercises are back in vogue, largely due to their ability to be performed anywhere, anytime. TRX and other suspension workouts are especially portable, requiring less space in a travel bag than a pair of shoes. By far the most compact, not to mention best-looking equipment for suspension training is monkii bars. Designed with the great outdoors in mind, these sleek wooden tubes store all the necessary accoutrements for a full-body workout al fresco. Just choose a support structure (a sturdy tree limb will do), throw over the 18ft sections of Spectra line, attach the hard maple handles and get right to work on those deltoid flies and chest presses. $149, monkiibars.com
