7 Benefits of TRX Suspension Training

7 Benefits of TRX Suspension Training

If you haven’t swung from the rafters with TRX suspension training before, the chances are you have already seen or read about it. Invented by a Navy Seal to keep his fellow troops fit in remote parts of the world, it involves the use of hanging bands to engage muscles using just your own body weight. When you change the angle of your body, every muscle is engaged in a pull or push motion.

This fantastic and simple method of exercise can allow anyone to reach their desired goal, be it weight loss, improved muscle tone or overall fitness. Here, we outline seven benefits of TRX suspension training, from its low impact nature to engaging your whole body.

  1. Suitable for all levels

It doesn’t matter if you’re an Olympic athlete or just venturing into a new hobby of fitness; TRX suspension training is beneficial for all levels of athlete. Just by changing your body position slightly, the load can be increased or decreased on your muscles. This means that everyone can use this method of training.

  1. Versatility

Just two adjustable bands provide a comprehensive workout to every single muscle in your body. You can transport them easily and set up the TRX suspension system anywhere. You can buy your own and carry on enjoying the benefits wherever you are.

  1. Improve cardio and strength

TRX suspension workouts will not only improve your muscle strength, but also your cardiovascular endurance. By changing your speed, you can increase the work out you give to your heart and lungs

  1. Help achieve any goal

Because of the versatility of the TRX suspension training, any goal is achievable. You may wish to gain muscle strength, lose weight or even train for a marathon. Whatever your aim, regular TRX suspension training will get you there.

  1. Engages whole body

The instability that the TRX suspension system creates while you perform movements constantly activates your core. Moreover, the functional movements works many muscles at the same time, providing a very comprehensive, all over workout.

  1. Low impact nature

Because of its suspended nature, TRX suspension training is very low impact. In turn, there is a low risk of injury allowing you to train as hard as you wish with less risk of causing or agitating a pre-existing injury.

  1. It’s different

Sometimes the monotony of going to the gym can be tedious, and we can often struggle to keep motivated with our fitness programmes. TRX suspension training is unlike any other technique for working out. Even better, it can be mixed into your normal training to liven it up. This will keep you engaged and looking forward to your sessions time and again.

By combining TRX suspension training with other activities, you will be able to get a great workout in a fun and new way.
