Also known as suspension training or instability training, TRX engages the whole body, working all muscle groups. It strengthens joints and improves core strength and balance. It is truly an all-in-one workout that is also quite convenient.
There are a variety of workouts you can do with suspension training, whether you are a beginner or have been at it awhile. You can add other equipment to your instability workout, such as balance balls or kettlebells.
Should I Do TRX Or Free Weights?
You could do either, or you could do both. It is really your own preference. A recent study has shown that the TRX workout provides just as effective results as weight training, so it comes down to what you prefer to do.
Not only that, but TRX training does not require bulky equipment. You can do it anywhere – the gym, at home in your bedroom, a hotel or outdoors. This is one of the advantages that can make it a great addition or alternative to traditional weight training.
Bottom line: TRX is an effective tool for strength training and is not a passing fad or a less serious workout.
