New free workout video by popular demand!
I’ve gotten so many emails asking about what I think about the “TRX” piece of fitness equipment and how to use it that I created 2 free workout videos for you.
First off, I think it’s a great tool to add to your arsenal.
That doesn’t mean I think it should be used for every exercise in your workouts, but again, it’s a nice compliment to dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells, bands, and all the other useful pieces of fitness equipment.
Now let’s get right into the workout I have for you today.
The 2 exercises I’m about to tell you about are really core based fat-burning movements that also involve the legs.
The benefit is that you’ll be able to spike your metabolism through high-intensity interval work while strengthening and toning your core and legs.
Here are the 2 exercises I’d like you to complete back-to-back without resting (if possible):
Exercise #1: TRX Knee Pull-ins
Exercise #2: TRX Mountain Climbers
To watch and hear me explain these 2 exercises and how you can do these at home or in the gym click the link below:
Keep in mind that you can do both of these exercises by substituting an exercise ball under your feet for the knee pull-ins and you can just keep your feet on the ground for your mountain climbers.
However, once you advance past those levels the TRX adds a new challenge and dimension to the workout by forcing you to stabilize both your right and left side in unison.
1. Make sure your feet are level with each other while in the TRX
2. Don’t hold your breath – breathe!
3. You can do this exercise for 20-30 seconds each exercise or you can aim for a certain number of reps before switching
4. If you’re losing form always place your knees down on the ground and discontinue the set
5. Perfect practice makes perfect, so always focus on form and just stick with it!
I hope you enjoy today’s new video and I’ll be back next week with more nutrition, body transformation, and workout tips!
