TRX: Full body workout with your own body weight

by John Harris Fitness

As diverse as this workout is, so is the variety of muscle groups that are trained. Inelastic belts help swinging, lying or standing to the dream figure - and that without external weights. In addition to strengthening the entire musculoskeletal system, balance and coordination are trained through the use of interlocking muscle chains.

What exactly is TRX?

Training equipment is, in addition to your own body, in this workout an inextensible belt system, which is either mounted on the ceiling, or a device, so that it dangles freely down. Therefore, enough free space is also needed all around. Each belt is adjustable in length and has a loop at the end that serves as a handle for many exercises. This type of training was originally developed by US soldiers who needed an effective workout with the simplest possible accessories to stay fit. The training position can vary a lot during TRX training, because the training device offers many possibilities. More than 300 different exercises can be performed with the belt system. Only your own body weight is used as a counterweight.

The ideal training for all levels

With TRX training, the exercises can be performed at different levels of difficulty. The athlete can easily decide for himself how easy or difficult he wants to make the workout. Shifting the body weight and thus one's own center of gravity further back during certain exercises, for example, also increases the training effect. This autonomy makes the TRX training also perfect for beginners or for the optimal rebuilding training after a sports injury.

Advantages of TRX Training

Hardly any other workout puts so much emphasis on body coordination. You will recognize exactly which exercises are easy for you and which require a lot of energy. You can use this knowledge to focus more on those parts of your body or exercises that are difficult for you. In this way, you ensure that you train your entire body evenly and compensate for muscular imbalances. The focus of TRX training is on improving inter- and intramuscular interaction. Your body is trained evenly and must practice the perfect harmony of the muscles. This will also help you in everyday life, as you will become more dexterous and agile, in addition to combating tension caused by imbalance in the muscles. Back pain can be alleviated and your condition can be improved in the long term.
