Efficacy of TRX

Through its own body size and suspension training, it can improve the strength, stability and flexibility of the whole body muscles. It is especially effective for the core body muscles. Therefore, it is favored by professional athletes. In addition, different from general weight-bearing training, TRX only uses its own weight, so it is basically suitable for people of all genders and ages.

TRX uses your own weight as resistance, and allows you to adjust the length of nylon belt to change the angle of muscle training, so as to train muscle strength, stability and flexibility. The application flexibility of TRX is high. Basically, you can use TRX to train all muscles of the body. As long as you can give full play to your creativity or find more information on the Internet, you can train at home without leaving home!

How to do TRX training?

1. TRX triceps brachii arm flexion and extension

Adjust the belt to shoulder height. Hold the handle, tilt your body, straighten your arms, support your body weight with TRX, and straighten your hips and knees. This will be your starting position. Bend the elbow and slowly lower the body, only the forearm moves, and the humerus (upper arm) remains fixed. When the elbow is close to 90 degrees, pause. Extend your elbow back to the starting position to complete this action.

2. Suspension forward tilt

Adjust the pulley so that the handle is at the appropriate height and below the waist. Start position: stand up and grasp the handle, tilt your body to the pulley, and take the posture of inclined push ups. Keep your arms straight, tilt further toward the suspended pulley, drive your body close to the ground, extend your shoulders, and lift your arms over your head. Keep the spine neutral and the rest of the body straight, and the shoulders are the only moving joints. When the movement reaches its maximum, pause and return to the starting position.

3. Suspension split squat

Hang the belt so that the handle is 45 to 76 cm above the ground. Turn your back to the equipment and put your back foot in the handle behind you. Keep your head straight ahead, chest up, knees slightly bent. This is the starting position of the action. Bend your knees, lower your hips and lower yourself to the ground. Keep your weight on your heels and keep a good posture during practice. At the lowest end of the movement, reverse the movement, extend the hips and knees back to the starting position.
