TRX Suspension Training Workout: 5 Do-Anywhere Exercises

Recently, I was introduced to TRX training and I cannot get enough. TRX was developed and born in the Navy SEALs — that alone tells you it’s pretty badass. TRX suspension training combines strength, balance, core stability and flexibility. It’s a nice change from the stacks of weights many of us use to build muscle. It uses gravity and your own body weight to perform all kinds of exercises.

It’s a major fitness craze and all for good reason: it’s effective, portable, challenging, and offers hundreds of exercise options that engages multiple muscles all at once. For example, a simple balance lunge can become a core-stabilization exercise. Oh! And you can do it basically anywhere you can securely anchor your TRX, making it perfect for this time of year when you’re looking to take your workout outside.

With that in mind, the awesome folks at TRX shared five TRX suspension exercises with us that will work your upper and lower body. If you’re just starting out, focus on doing two sets of each for 30-45 seconds. Try not to rush. The more time you spend with the tension, the stronger you’ll be.

The Row

Set Up: Face the anchor point (the spot your TRX is clipped into) while holding onto the handles and lean back while keeping tension on the straps.

Low-Row-Start

Movement: Using your back muscles, row your body up until your hands are on the sides of your chest. Brace your core and try to move your whole body in one controlled movement.

Return: Use your back muscles to slowly lower your body to the start position.

Low-Row-Finish
