What is TRX training?
TRX is an acronym that stands for total resistance exercise. It’s a full-body workout that relies on suspension from specialized TRX training bands. It was first invented by Randy Hetrick, a US Navy SEAL who valued suspension training as an effective alternative to old-fashioned pushups, which could be hard on joints. After leaving the Navy, Hetrick got an MA from Stanford University where he perfected his TRX-style workout. After graduating, he promoted and popularized TRX throughout the world.
The first TRX system was jerry-rigged out of a parachute and jiu-jitsu belt. In some ways, TRX’s simplicity is what allowed it to scale and proliferate so rapidly in recent years. TRX is also celebrated by many for how easy it is to learn and master. All that’s required when setting up a TRX station is a secure base to attach straps onto. Once this is accomplished, you’re ready to perform a vast and versatile range of dynamic exercises.
Using an individual’s natural body weight and gravity for leverage instead of depending on gym equipment, TRX exercises can be performed virtually anywhere. This basic arrangement also makes the TRX Suspension Trainer easy to travel with or set up at home. Anyone can enjoy the benefits of TRX wherever with no more luggage than a small anchor point. And because it revolves entirely around a single training tool, it’s easy to adjust on the fly. This allows one to minimize downtime and setup time while switching from one exercise to the next.
Delivers a fast, effective total-body workout
TRX’s most valuable benefit is the reduction of stress the body endures while working out. Using gravity as resistance, TRX workouts allow individuals to build coordination, flexibility, core strength, balance, and joint stability without overstressing the joints, tendons, or muscles. As a result, TRX is a safe way to slim down, increase stamina, and improve flexibility.
Another notable upside of TRX is its ability to build strong core muscles. Every movement performed on a TRX Suspension Trainer requires bracing and stabilizing the body by flexing one’s abs, obliques, and lower back. Leveraging body weight in this manner will increase one’s core strength exponentially. Having a strong core does much more than sculpting and shaping one’s abdominal muscles. It will increase one’s resistance to injury, flexibility, and range of motion.
Benefits For All Fitness Levels
TRX training can be enjoyed by nearly anyone. After all, shifting resistance levels is as easy as adjusting one’s body position. This allows the practitioner to remain in control of how challenging each workout will be. It is ideal for elders and individuals with injuries or arthritis because of its low-impact qualities. As a result, all athletic builds and physiques can train comfortably with minimal risk of tearing a muscle, compromising joints, or exacerbating a pre-existing injury.
Today, TRX training is enjoyed across the world by every age and athletic level, including:
- Professional athletes
- Military members
- Gym members
- Senior citizens
- Weight loss clinics
- And much more!
