Whether you want to generate more power in your athletic movements or you just want to look better in those jeans, it seems like everyone is all about the booty these days. In order to help you reach your goals, TRX Master Instructor, Shana Verstegen notes that getting a BETTER BUTT can be as simple as adding these two TRX exercises.
Watch Shana demonstrate these simple Suspension Training exercises. One you can do without the Suspension Trainer (the Lunge), the other (the One-legged Squat)… you can’t (at least, most of us can’t). And that's what makes the Suspension Trainer such a versatile and invaluable tool.
No matter your ability level, working with the Suspension Trainer will help you target those muscles in the glutes, hips and thighs, burn the calories and get the BETTER BUTT you’re after.
The FIRST exercise for a BETTER BUTT: TRX One-legged Squat
Using the Suspension Trainer, they are multiple progression options for the one-legged squat. Shana's brief video will walk you through several progressions of the exercise. To get started, do the following:
1) Stand facing the anchor point. 2) Make sure your straps are at mid-length. 3) Balance on your right foot. 4) With your left leg forward, put your heel down. 5) Keeping your heel on the ground, lower your body down. 6) Go as low as is comfortable with your right leg, then come up. 7) Repeat or increase in difficulty by lifting your left heel off the ground.
The SECOND exercise for a BETTER BUTT: TRX Crossing Balance Lunge
For a broad range of skill levels, there are multiple progressions for this exercise as well. Start by doing the following;
1) Stand facing the anchor point. 2) Make sure your straps are at mid-length. 3) Balance on your right foot. 4) Lift and place you left foot behind and to the right of your right leg 5) Bend and lower both legs down to your comfort level 6) Repeat, or increase in difficulty by lifting your left leg off the ground
For an even better explanation of the TRX One-legged Squat and the TRX Crossing Balance Lunge, please watch Shana's short video.
Ultimately, if you're going to put in the time for a workout, you want - you need it to be effective. There is no more effective tool that the TRX Suspension Trainer.
