TRX Suspension Training uses bodyweight exercises to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability. This kind of training delivers a full-body workout, with exercises that challenge abs, back, shoulders, chest, hips and legs.
The workout requires the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer, a portable training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s bodyweight to complete a variety of exercises. By using your own bodyweight, a TRX workout provides greater performance and functionality than large, expensive exercise machines.
Benefits of TRX Training
Work out anywhere. The TRX Suspension Trainer can be set up anywhere — at home, the gym, a hotel or outside. The system is comprised of straps that can be hung from the ceiling, a wall, a door or a tree.
Control your workout. With TRX, you are in complete control of how challenging you want each exercise to be. TRX allows you to adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance, making it a safe and effective workout for people of all fitness levels. You adapt the system to your fitness level — simply changing the position of your feet can adjust the load and level of difficulty.
Improve functional movements. Suspension training develops strength through functional movements and dynamic positions. Everyday activities require our bodies to move in various planes — natural movements are not isolated to a single plane. Isolated exercises (like those done on exercise machines) contradict how your body was designed to move and promote one-dimensional movements that can result in muscle imbalance, joint dysfunction, decreased range of motion and increased risk of injury.
Challenge your whole body. Exercise machines seen in most gyms have seats and supports that limit movement and the opportunity to develop the muscles necessary for posture and stabilization. During a TRX workout, you’re not completing exercises while sitting down. Instead, you are exercising while standing, engaging the whole body and forcing you to control and strengthen your stabilizing muscles. When you work several muscles or muscle groups at one time through a wide range of motion, muscles are strengthened proportionately, decreasing risk of injury.
Suspension training can reduce the amount of time you spend working out by working different parts of your body at once. Get more out of your workout with TRX.
