Suspension training, otherwise known as TRX training, has almost become a necessity in a good gym because of its ability to be used by everyone from beginner to advanced gym goer. TRX which stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise is a fantastic form of exercise that uses your own body weight and gravity to create resistance.
A few benefits of the TRX are that it can be used to build strength, balance, flexibility and co-ordination safely and also very effectively.
The best thing about TRX is that due to its adjustability you can change the height to allow different levels of difficulty and different muscle activation. You can also perform a vast variety of exercises in just that one spot meaning you can spend less time moving around and just get straight into your workout.
A few of the exercises that I personally enjoy are the back row, squatting and standing triceps extensions.
I also love the TRX because it doesn't matter what exercise you're doing you will always be using your core in many different ways. I love using the TRX when I am training legs because it allows me to use a different angle on the exercises I'm performing with it. This means that i will be using my muscles in a totally new way.
If you want to include the TRX into your fitness regime or want to add a new exercise into your routine please come and find me or any of the instructors and we will be happy to demonstrate.
