TRX Suspension Training
TRX Suspension Training Introduction
In recent months TRX training has become prevalent in many gyms and is on the rise throughout the US, UK and rest of the world. Its use, especially by personal trainers, as an alternative to resistance training with weights has brought rise to its popularity.
TRX suspension training can provide an alternative method of training to gym goers wishing to vary their training regime to keep muscles guessing and to maintain motivation levels.
TRX Suspension Training Description
TRX is a commerical name given to a type of suspension training that involves the use of ropes or bands suspended above the head. Invented by an ex-marine, it is considered by many as one of the most revolutionary techniques in gym training in years. The use of bands, suspended from above, serve as training aids in which many different exercises can be performed.
These exercises can range from suspended press-ups with the feet in the straps, chest press, pull-ups, twisting exercises that focus on the core, assisted squats and lunges. The TRX Suspension Training manufacturers suggest that the number of exercises and variation to the exercises are limitless with every muscle group being able to be worked effectively.
Those who are new to training, or are relatively unfit may find the use of TRX Suspension Training difficult, as there is a minimum requirement of core strength to be able to get into the positions demanded to perform various exercises. It should therefore be recommended that the trainee has a minimum level of core strength ability before any of the more advanced exercises be undertaken.
The TRX provides a total-body workout for men and women of all ages and fitness levels with just one piece of equipment that is easy to set up, use and store. TRX products are made by Fitness Anywhere, which designs and sells original products of innovative design and premium quality construction.
Used by elite athletes in the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS & NCAA including Drew Brees, Carmelo Anthony, Jamie Moyer and more.
TRX has been featured in Men’s Health, Outside, Self, Shape, Sports Illustrated, NY Times, WSJ, Today Show and Good Morning America.
