Workout Wednesday // Working Out With A TRX

Workout Wednesday // Working Out With A TRX

Purchasing a TRX is one of the best investments I have ever made. Why you ask? Two reasons: convenience and a wide variety of exercises. I’m all about no excuses when it comes to working out and I don’t mean it can only be heart pumping, sweat dripping and I’m about to pass out workout (let’s hope this is never ever the case). I also mean working on flexibility, stabilizing and strengthening. The TRX comes in a conveniently small black mesh bag to store in. It doesn’t weigh much either so carrying it in a gym bag, travel bag or luggage bag is not an issue. Not working out is the issue! The TRX comes with a door anchor for doors or a strap to wrap around a pole or tree. I bet some of you are asking what is a TRX? It’s a suspension system that uses leverages of gravity and body weight to get hundreds of exercises in and change the level of resistance based on different body positions. The TRX can be used in 2 methods by repetition or timed exercise. I personally recommend reps for people who are new to the TRX or still haven’t grasped full knowledge of body positions during exercise. The time based method I recommend for people who have put their dues into the gym and using the TRX, but there isn’t no wrong or right in this one! The TRX is found in a variety of practices these days from physical therapy offices, Pilates studio to some MMA facilities. I'll leave you with one of my personal favorite core TRX workouts I’ve put together that I've found effective. TRX Core workout Try these moves as a circuit w/a minute rest after completion for 3 sets of 45sec or 15reps each exercise. Give it a try and have fun.

Working out with a TRX

-Standing roll out: keep the body aligned as you move forward. Slow and control will help strengthen -Standing hip drop: keep the chest and hips facing the same direction as you drop the hip (make sure to do both sides)

Happy TRX-ing
