Going into yesterday’s TRX workshop I thought I understood the concept of the TRX and pretty much knew everything you could do with it. But after spending eight hours in a poorly ventilated, 8ft x 8ft YMCA aerobics studio with about 20 other people, I came away with some new exercises and new ways to use the TRX as part of my programming. Besides enabling you to do a ton of exercises, it’s a piece of equipment that can be used to teach progressions, can be used to deload particular exercises and can help with mobility issues.
One exercise I came away with is the TRX Overhead Squat. I would use the TRX Overhead Squat as part of a squat progression or as part of a mobility warm up. Using the TRX with this exercise is going to do a few things. It’s going to allow you to get to appropriate depth without fear of falling over. And it’s going to turn on your core and scapular stabilizers as long you keep tension on the TRX while lowering into your squat.
It’s important to keep tension on the TRX the entire time or there’s no reason for using it. No slack at the bottom, no slack at the top.
Purchase a TRX by December 16 and get %15off and get free shipping. A great value…for your body and your wallet.
