We LOVE TRX training. What is it? Great question. A TRX suspension trainer is a piece of equipment that can be used for building muscular strength, endurance, mobility, stability, core strength and cardiovascular fitness. TRX training utilizes your body weight and gravity to complete hundreds of exercises using just ONE piece of equipment. It is lightweight and can be set up anywhere and everywhere! A few things we encourage you to keep in mind when using the TRX Suspension Trainer is to be mindful of engaging your core, your foot placement in relation to the anchor point can change the difficulty of the movement, and to remember to keep tension on the TRX trainer at all times.
Here is 10-minute resistance training workout for you! It uses the TRX and a specific interval training method called, Tabata. Tabata training uses time intervals of 20 seconds work to 10 seconds rest/recovery. You repeat this cycle 8 times to equal 4 minutes of continuous work. The beauty of tabata training is that it is quick, focused, and efficient. You can get creative with tabata training, which is something that I love.
This TRX workout consists of 2 different tabatas. Each tabata will cycle between four different exercises to keep it interesting 🙂 All exercises are completed using the TRX. I provide instruction at the beginning of each tabata and allow you to do the rest on your own. Listen to your own music or find a tabata playlist to go along with the workout! Spotify has several songs that are timed and formatted specifically for a tabata workout. It’s awesome, you should check it out!
