One of the major benefits of TRX is the ability to improve your core strength with nearly every exercise you perform. Due to the anchoring and design of the suspension system, there is almost always a level of functional instability no matter what you’re doing. I think of it as just enough instability to have a purposeful training effect without going overboard on excess props and circus tricks.
Stand under anchor, straps on your right with handles at waist. Place right hand on both handles and step right leg out, toes facing straps. Turn left foot so heel is perpendicular to right heel.trx training. Press right hand down into straps as you hinge at the waist and extend right hand forward. Shift left hip back while keeping pelvis tucked and core engaged. Raise left arm and turn gaze toward ceiling. Repeat on the other side.Make it harder: Flip hand so back of hand is on handles or place hand in foot cradles for a deeper stretch.
TRX bands offer one of the most efficient full-body workouts around. In this episode of Moves, Doug Lawder of Railyard Fitness in Santa Fe walks us through the five best TRX exercises anyone can do.
