TRX Suspension Training
Suspension training turns every major movement into a total-body movement, so reducing the risks of injury. At the end of the day, who doesn’t want to improve core strength and muscular/joint stability, but one of the problems with TRX is that it is very difficult to use if you do not have a degree of core strength and joint stability
Assuming you are happy using the TRX, you immediately have a catalogue of fantastic exercises and movements that you can utilize and choose from. You can take any normal gym based exercise, and do the same movements on the TRX, but with core stabilisation. Take the picture of me on the TRX for example. A routine press up movement, whilst suspended, not only works the expected pectoral muscles and anterior deltoids, but I also have to stabilise my core (abdominals, multifidus, pelvic floor) and also contract my lats to stabilise the upper body movement. TRX provides a multidirectional instability, and that’s why so many more muscle groups are utilised in the movements.
Anybody that wants to try TRX should always do this under supervision. It’s a technique which if done wrong, could certainly lead to injury.
