TRX Suspension Training
TRX is a portable training device that uses a person’s bodyweight via suspension training in functional movements utilizing multiple planes.
TRX is not that different from kettlebell programming where there is a lot of variability in the training. It allows for the bracketing concept by simple moving the foot and leg position for a person to use their bodyweight more effectively when required. The programming does offer DVDs and other guides to structure training.
Since there is such an emphasis on bodyweight training the core is emphasized through most movements. An athlete can do a variety of exercises like chest press, rows, lunges and planks.
The body will become stronger while mobility is increased in the hips, low back, abs, obliques and abs. It is common for TRX athletes to boast the benefits of increased strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability and injury prevention.
