TRX was one of my favorite exercise classes to take in college. It was easily customizable, to everyones skill level. I wasn’t in to lifting weights back then, so this was the perfect start to getting into my fitness journey. I’m not saying TRX is easy, cause it absolutely isn’t, but I will show you a few beginner moves first.
Simply, put your feet into the straps, get into a plank position, and get those hips up in the air. These are for sure an ab burner.
You’ll need to start in the plank position, bringing one knee to your chest at a time, while engaging your core.
Lay on your back, engage your core, and bring your knee toward your chest. extend back out. You will feel the burn in your booty and hamstrings pretty quickly.
Start in standing position, bend your knees down to a 90 degree angle, and come back up. Try not to put all your leverage on the TRX strap.
Start standing up with one foot out, squat down on all the way to the ground, and come back up. the straps are there to assist you, not completely support you. Switch legs when done with your reps.
Start leaned back, arms fully extended. The closer your feet are to the wall, the harder it will be. Bring your hands to your ears, and extend back down, while in control of your body.
Start with arms extended, palms facing each other. Really focus on your back muscles, and pull your body to your hands, in a low row. The closer your feet are to a wall, the harder they will be.
Turn around, face away from the wall. Extend your arms, and bring your hands to your ears. Push back up. This should all be very controlled movement, and engage your tricep muscles, while keeping your elbows in.
Still facing the outside, make your TRX straps a little longer, get into an extended push up position, and lower yourself down like a push up. Repeat.
Now you know some of my favorite simple TRX exercises. I am not a professional, and always talk to your doctor before starting a new exercise program. I will be making a video of these in the coming weeks, so be on the look out for that! What are your favorite TRX exercises? Or are you a TRX newbie?! Leave me some comments!
