I’ve been an avid CrossFitter for almost 2 years now and just recently I’ve started to incorporate the TRX into some of my weekly WOD’s. I have to say I’m a believer now and have been noticing huge gains with both my static and dynamic lifts, as well, my core doesn’t fatigue as quickly when doing sit-ups, ring dips, or pull ups. Crazy, I know, I sound like an infomercial, but all you have to do is try it once and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
The below except is straight from the TRX website as they are better at explaining the origins and benefits, but let me tell you – just try one and figure it out for yourself.
What is TRX Suspension Training? Born in the U.S. Navy SEALs and developed by Fitness Anywhere, Suspenion Training is a revolutionary method of leveraged bodyweight exercise. Easily set up the portable TRX Suspension Trainer and you’re in control.
