TRX suspension training has become one of the most sought-after exercise programs around. It's not hard to see why. TRX training, which utilizes both your body weight and gravity, is a portable, versatile program that works your body's entire core. Using the suspension of two straps, it simultaneously provides strength and cardio training.
Why Should I Use TRX?
The TRX suspension system weighs less than two pounds and can be easily transported from place to place. You can also take it with you when you travel, as it easily fits into a suitcase or carry-on bag. In turn, this takes away the excuse of travel as a reason to interrupt your training program. It also allows you to work out virtually anywhere you want as it can be anchored on hotel doors, trees, wooden support beams — you name it. Moreover, you can get a great workout in no more than 30 minutes.
2. Attacks The Core
Core strength is vitally important for athletes of all levels. The core (your torso) must supply the power to create movement and overcome resistance. TRX actively engages your core through a variety of exercises that can be done at different angles and different intensity levels. In fact, every exercise done with the TRX system works your core muscles.
One of the great benefits of TRX training is that by using your own body weight and gravity, you're able to adjust to your own fitness level. For example, you can increase the intensity level of your workout just by walking yourself closer or further away from the anchor point. This also enables you to keep your heart rate up as you keep moving.
4. Enhanced Balance And Stability
An important element of all athletic movement is a strong foundation. While the TRX is used to isolate body parts, it also forces you to develop your balance by becoming comfortable in less than optimal positions.
TRX allows you to do incredibly effective and efficient full-body workouts by utilizing hundreds of core and stretching exercises. You'll train just like an athlete as you're able to work on speed, agility, balance and cardio.
