TRX – Train like a Navy Seal!

One type of exercise I am super keen to try is TRX training. I used the suspension band during a circuits workout at my local gym and have been dying to know more about it ever since!

TRX Suspension training was invented by a Navy Seal who used his sewing kit, an old jujitsu belt,  parachute webbing to create a suspension belt that can be hung in doors, off of poles and generally any kind of stable anchor point. The reason for doing this was because he wanted to create a way to stay in shape whilst away from home and the gym. (I know what I’ll be packing on my next work trip!!)

Anyway, the point of it is that once the resistance band is anchored to something you can utilise it in hundreds of different ways to create an all over body workout.  The key factors of using your own body weight with these bands is to develop balance, stability, a solid core and strength. And just by slightly changing your position you can instantly intensify a workout. These bands have basically become the portable version of pretty much every single piece of gym equipment and there’s no need to worry about packing your weights because that what you are!

Check out some of the exercises you can do 🙂 Will most definitely be using this to try and get the toned arms I desire! As well as adding some definition to my abdominals 🙂
