TRX, Why You Need to DO IT!

Posted by Andy Sundblad on

Anyone interested in transforming their body while building strength and muscle cannot afford to overlook TRX exercises. Perfect for home gyms and even outdoor workouts, TRX exercises are designed to build core stability, as well as increase flexibility, strength and muscle. Thanks to these exercises, you can enjoy the same workouts currently used by the United States military, pro-athletic teams and world-class athletes right in the privacy of your own home, as well as anywhere of your choosing outside, in the park or in your hotel room when you’re traveling!

What Are TRX Exercises?

Introduced to the world by a former Navy Seal, Randy Hetrick, TRX stands for Total Resistance eXercise. It is a form of exercise that relies on suspension straps, the body’s own weight and gravity to build strength, flexibility, balance and muscle. Its predecessor, rope training, has been used since at least the 1800s.

Do TRX/Suspension Training Workouts Really Work?

Yes, TRX exercises make for a highly effective workout! They rely on suspension straps which work by requiring resistance from the body’s own weight to break muscles down and leaves them sore from the tiny tears they create in the muscle’s tissue. These unique exercises also make muscles contract hard while shifting in order to maintain balance. As the muscles rebuild and recover from the workout, they come back even stronger and larger than they were before.

Who Can Do TRX/Suspension Workouts?

Just about any and everyone can do TRX exercises. While they are a popular training method used by all branches of the United States military, as well as professional baseball teams, football teams and various athletes, other people at all fitness levels can also engage in TRX/suspension workouts. Women, men, young people, senior adults and those just starting to workout can all do TRX/suspension exercises.

Home gym enthusiasts especially love TRX/suspension workouts since they bring the equivalent of a full gym workout into a home gym with just a single piece of equipment. Suspension straps are also portable, so they can be used anywhere and are even great for outdoor workouts as they can be suspended from a tree, a railing or even a park’s jungle gym for a scenic change of pace.

Which TRX Exercises Should I Do?

There are a number of very effective TRX/suspension exercises one can use to work the entire body. Our Suspension Workout poster was designed to help you get the maximum benefit from 40 different exercises you can do at home or wherever you may be.
