TRX Suspension Training

June 1, 2017 | By | Reply

TRX Suspension Trainer is a highly portable performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to complete the exercises.

You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.

Suspension training allows you to deliberately change your centre of gravity, which challenges your muscles.

What are Isolation and Integrated exercises?

Isolation exercises are minor, one-off events during which you focus on and work only one muscle group at a time, often in one plane of motion. While such exercises may be effective for developing muscularity, they are generally simpler movements with limited neuromuscular development benefit.

Integrated exercises engage intensive, interconnected movements, often multi-planar, which require coordinated efforts. This type of exercise enhances the nervous system’s ability to effectively coordinate movement at higher levels and build strong motor patterns, increase stabilization and functional muscle mass.

Isolation vs. Integrated Exercises

  • Sitting down, while doing exercises lessens the opportunity to develop postural and stabilizing muscles that are critical for effective movement.
  • Training while standing, or engaging the whole body, forces you to control and strengthen the body’s stabilizing muscles.
  • With TRX, you become fitter and improve your joint stability and muscle balance, which is a direct by-product of the “standing postures” performed at TRX.
