TRX Susension Training

Suspension training is unlike any other training modality. It incorporates all of the 37 core muscles. Because all the core muscles are activated you cannot train one muscle at a time like bodybuilders often try to do. This forces you to train the whole body as one synergistic unit instead of trying to hit individual muscles.

Some of the best suspension training exercises include chest presses, one leg jump squats, atomic push ups, the pendulum, and inverted rows. Suspension straps allow you to train in all three planes of motion transverse, sagital, and frontal.

One of the best things about suspension training is that you can increase or reduce the resistance by increasing or decreasing the angle. An example of this is the inverted row so imagine your feet are up against a tree holding onto straps suspended from a tree branch above you, your feet are horizontal to the ground and you pull yourself up. This is a real inverted row and it is very difficult. Now imagine you are standing and just leaning back at a 30 degree angle now it is a lot easier and you can probably do it without a problem regardless of your current fitness levels. By training in this manner you can progressively increase the angle and improve your physique with each subsequent workout.

TRX suspension straps are by Fitness Anywhere because you really can use them anywhere over a tree branch, pull-up bar, joist, or even on a door frame.

  1. I can attest to this, it's a killer workout, using your own body as weight, in multiple positions you can make it as intense as you're willing to push yourself!
