For those of us who are asking what the heck is TRX? The TRX Suspension Trainer is a highly portable performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight that develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability.
Using this body resistant suspension trainer, various exercises can be done to work on every part of your body. It is also scalable to any fitness or strength level, providing a challenge for everyone, whether it’s your first time on the suspension trainer, or you’re a TRX pro!
As Lucille Roberts is focused on helping you get Spring Ready, below are some workouts via TRX.com using this amazing tool to add a little spring refresh to your workout routine!
TRX Hamstring Curls Lay on your back with your heels in the foot cradles, directly under the anchor point. Press your heels down and brace your core to lift your hips up. Imagine you are performing a plank on your back. Use your hamstrings to bend your knees and pull your heels in toward your butt. Engage your core the entire time. Send your heels back to the start position in one slow and controlled motion.
TRX Squats Stand facing the TRX Suspension Trainer with the handles in your hands and some tension on the straps. Keep your weight in your heels and focus on engaging your core as if you were performing a standing plank. Lower your hips down and back until your knees are bent just below 90 degrees. Keep your chest up, engage your core and drive your knees out as you go down. Drive through your heels and extend your hips to stand back up.
TRX Mountain Climbers: Start in a push up position with your toes in the foot cradles and your hands directly under your shoulders. Brace your core and draw one knee towards your chest while keeping your other leg straight. Allow your hips to pike up a little as you reach the top of the movement. Straighten your leg and lower your hips to return to the start position. Repeat with the other leg.
