Suspension Trainers such as the TRX and Jungle Gym are great tools to have available either at your gym or even at home!
They are easy to transport and set up. The versatility that these tools provide is tremendous. There is a wide variety of exercises that can be done with these and provide an excellent choice for developing your home gym during these times.
This article is an overview of some of the common upper body exercises we use in-person and in our online training programs. No matter how much you perform these they can still provide a great challenge!
Below are 5 Upper Body TRX Exercises:
How to implement: (this is not intended as a prescription, use at your own risk)
Typically we sprinkle these exercises throughout the workout, but we can also use these as a circuit or even workout finishers.
Depending on the individuals fitness level and experience, rep ranges can go from 10-20+, even timed circuits.
If you’re just starting out it is recommended you do 8-10 reps. Make sure you stay in control of the exercise and have a solid base with your foot placement to avoid slipping.
If you’re advanced, give a shot at some higher reps or timed sets. Again, make sure you stay in control of the exercise and have a solid base with your foot placement to avoid slipping.
Try these exercises out in your next workout and I’d love to hear or see how they go!
