Who will benefit from TRX Suspension Training?
Everyone can benefit from Suspension Training. Because the user can effortlessly control the resistance and level of difficulty by simply shifting the position of their body, the TRX® Suspension Trainer™ Professional is perfect for gentle rehabilitation, athletic training, and everything in between. Suspension Training® also allows for a more functional workout routine.
Is Suspension Training appropriate for people who are out of shape or just beginning an exercise programme?
Yes, because the user has control over the amount of bodyweight resistance, control of the angle in which they place their body and which means it can be used for people that are not professional or performance athletes nor regularly active.
How is Suspension Training® different from other types of resistance training?
Traditional weight training often only works one muscle at a time. Focusing on only one muscle at a time is more likely to lead to overuse injuries and muscular imbalances. TRX requires several muscle groups to work together therefore improving condition and training benefits.
What’s the best way to ease into Suspension Training?
Firstly book your 15 minute TRX introduction at reception with an instructor to show you safe and effective use.
To ease into suspension training it is best to choose 5 to 6 exercises that are suitable to your fitness level and do a single set of each working at 10 to 12 repetitions.
You should start with a less advanced resistance or body position and take the time to make sure that your form is perfect. Also take lots of rest between exercises.
Once you feel comfortable with the movements you can progress a number of ways.
Try to slowly introduce more challenging resistances, increase the number of exercises and the volume of your workout in terms of sets and reps and decrease the rest you take between each movement and between sets.
