If you think you have to tackle stacks of weights to build muscle, you’re wrong. TRX suspension training will sculpt every muscle in your body, even outperforming other exercises to give you the rock-solid body you want, without lifting a single dumbbell.
TRX suspension training uses two suspension straps that allow you to use your own bodyweight against gravity to build muscle and burn fat. As you struggle to maintain stability, your core is tightened, more muscle groups are engaged and worked more deeply.
TRX can be adapted for all exercise abilities because you’re relying on your own ability to get your centre of gravity. Every gym does it a little differently, but as long as you’re prepared to start slowly you can progress to advanced levels easily.
Here are three great exercises to whip you into shape quickly for the summer:
There’s not many of us who can do a single leg squat. But the TRX makes it a lot easier.
To intensify the move, add a hop at the top.
The Power Pull is a powerful move that targets the upper back, abs, shoulders and obliques.
This is a high-intensity cardio move which works your hamstrings, quads, glutes, core, and chest.
There's TRX at my gym but I've not attempted it yet - some of these moves sound manageable though. I'll see next time I'm in.
TRX workouts are great and I am lucky that I can use one at my gym. Single leg squats with TRX feels amazing too.
