We get lead to believe that if we use this machine and that machine that we'll get the bodies we want. Well how much it too much to spend on fitness. It's a billion dollar industry that has no end in sight.
People will keep spending on the next best thing. So let me help with your decision. It's lightweight, fits into a small mess bag and can be brought anywhere....you guessed it TRX. I begin all my clients on the TRX suspension training unit. It's great for beginners and advance athletes.
This happens to be one of those items I find myself saying why didn't I think of that. It's so simple, practical and super effective. It is one of my main pieces included in my daily workout. These two straps with handles have the ability to challenge multiple parameters of performance.
The concept really isn't new. Gymnastics and ariel acrobatics having been using this method for years. For all those that haven't quite yet perfected the chin up, this is perfect it allows you to use your own body weight for resistance to meet the goal of a full chin up.
Let's take a chest press for example. The pecs are the primary muscle worked, now reverse that into a suspended push up using the TRX. With your chest still holding on as the primary, the exercise encompasses right to the floor, your feet. TRX may help adjacent muscle groups to work together in a synergistic fashion, or as a single unit. You are not only gaining muscle strength, but core and stability strength as well. It forces you to always engage those pelvic muscle to ensure perfect alignment. Which a squeeze and hold as we know is isometrics increasing core strength both dynamically and statically. So there you have it. TRX makes a great compliment to every workout. Perfect for beginners, challenges the advances and just switches it up so you don't get bored!
So go out there and get SUSPENDED!!!!....AHAHAHAHA......get it.....I know....I know....well my brother thinks I'm funny!
