Sometimes we can struggle to keep motivated with our fitness programmes. We can feel stuck training with the same machines, picking up the same weights week in week out. There are many different ways to challenge the body.
If you’ve not tried TRX Suspension Training for yourselves the chances are you're well aware of it. Suspension Training involves the use of hanging bands to engage your muscles using just your own body weight. This fantastic and simple method of exercise can allow anyone to reach their desired goal, be it weight loss, improved muscle tone or overall fitness.
Here at Total Fitness we have 2 TRX systems and a Step-by Step TRX Exercise guide available to members to learn how to perform a variety of Suspension training exercises.
Here are some benefits of TRX suspension training:
Suitable for all levels
Just by changing your body position slightly, the load can be increased or decreased on your muscles meaning that everyone can use this method of training.
Just two adjustable bands provide a comprehensive workout to every single muscle in your body. You can transport them easily and set up the TRX suspension system anywhere
Improve cardio and strength
By changing the speed at which you perform the exercise, you can increase the work out you give to your heart and lungs.
Help achieve any goal
Because of the versatility of the TRX suspension training, any goal can be achieved. You may wish to gain muscle strength, lose weight or even train for a marathon. Whatever your aim, regular TRX suspension training will get you there.
Engages whole body
The instability that the TRX suspension system creates whilst you perform movements means that your core is constantly activated. Moreover, the functional movements mean that many muscles are worked at the same time, providing a very comprehensive, all over workout.
Because of its suspended nature, suspension training is very low impact and means that your joints are not put under much stress. In turn, this means that there is a low risk of injury, allowing you to train as hard as you wish with reduced risk of causing or agitating a pre-existing injury.
TRX suspension training is unlike any other technique for working out and can be mixed into your normal training to liven it up. This will keep you engaged and looking forward to your sessions. Remember, the best kind of exercise and diet program is the one that you are most likely to stick to. Sustainability is key to long-term lifestyle changes.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
