TRX stands for Total Body Resistance and is a workout method that uses body weight and gravity to make workouts more challenging. TRX helps to build strength, balance, endurance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability. The suspended nature of the straps means there’s an automatic instability, which activates core engagement as the body attempts to stabilize itself. TRX is performed using a TRX Suspension Trainer, which is a single heavy-duty adjustable strap, made from high quality nylon. The strap is hung in half, usually from a ceiling, with loops for hands or feet on either end. The Suspension Trainer is an easily portable system that can be set up anywhere with an anchor point. The exercises can be performed individually or in a studio class led by an instructor. The classes typically last 45 minutes, and the entire session involves hovering off the ground or leaning into or away from the straps to create the push/pull resistance. Most studios have different straps at alternating heights around the room depending on the exercises. Higher up straps are used for upper body exercises like a horizontal pull up or a press up, while the lower straps are better for lunges or plank-based movements. There are six basic body positions with TRX: standing - face the anchor point, face away from the anchor point, and face sideways to the anchor point; on the ground - lay face down, lay face up, lay on your side. These positions allow for over a hundred types of exercises to be performed. Common exercises include TRX-assisted pull-up, atomic push-up, TRX row, TRX muscle-up, Eccentric TRX box step-up, Eccentric TRX hamstring curl, TRX Bulgarian split squat, TRX weighted forward lunge. TRX is a very low impact form of exercise, allowing people of all levels to train comfortably while minimizing the risk of causing or agitating a pre-existing injury. TRX is used by professional athletes, the military, Olympians, and average gym goers.
