Did you know that the TRX Suspension Trainer offers everything you need for a total home gym? Here, TRX Head of Human Performance Chris Frankel shows you unique TRX exercises for your arms, core, back and legs to prove that the TRX Suspension Trainer is in fact the best option when you are looking for a home gym.
Most workout programs call for pushing and pulling movements for the upper body, some sort of squatting or lunging for the lower body and some core work. Well, here are just a few ideas we came up with that you can do with your TRX home gym.
TRX Chest Press
TRX Chest Fly
TRX Triceps Press
TRX Bicep Curl
TRX Resisted Torso Rotation
Or any of the above exercises in single handle mode
Lower Body Movements
TRX Single Leg Squat
Put it all together for a metabolic challenge: TRX Burpee (Push-up, Plank, Lunge and Jump)
What’s important to note is that you can load (add weight) or unload (remove weight) any movement instantly just by changing your body’s position relative to the anchor point (stepping forward or back). This is a huge advantage to the TRX, you don’t have to changing weights after every exercise, so you don’t have to buy more plates or heavier dumbbells, essentially your set with one purchase.
Also you can modify any of the upper body movements to a single handle version adding a rotational or counter-rotational component, which you do not get with any other kind of workout system.
Takeaway: For a total at home gym a TRX Suspension Trainer is not only the more versatile and unique than any other product on the market but it’s also way more affordable and discreet than a set of weights or a bulky machine.
