The Benefits of Suspension Training (TRX)
As I get older it seems to be that I’m getting wiser….I know, I’m just as surprised as you are. But since I’ve been in the fitness industry for more than 15 years now I have seen many products claiming to be the one and only piece of equipment that would get me ripped, lean and some other descriptive words that late night infomercials tout. However, the one tried and true piece that has become my favorite is the TRX Suspension Trainer.
Suspension training body weight exercise is uniquely effective at enabling loading and unloading of movements to meet individual client needs. It is distinguished from traditional exercises in that the user’s hands or feet are generally supported by a single anchor point, while the opposite end of the body is in contact with the ground. Therefore, the client is in total control of exercise ranges of motion as well as tempo, speed and reps. (Nickelson, Perry 2012)
