Build muscle and burn fat with this this full-body TRX workout.
When the weights room isn’t an option, suspension training provides the perfect alternative.
“TRX utilises a huge amount of muscle integration, which means more muscles are working together for a better tone and calorie burn, as well as increased strength and often reduced injury risk,” says TRX Senior Master Trainer Matt Gleed.
“All the exercises require a high level of core control, too, so the physique benefits are clear.
“TRX training allows your whole body to strengthen as a unit, and while the larger muscles are the main targets, your smaller, stabilising muscles are also being engaged. That means that by developing your entire body, you’re reducing any weak points in the system and improving both efficiency and movement.”
How To: Do each move for 45 secs and take 15 mins rest between moves. Rest for 60-90 secs at the end of the round and repeat 3-4 times.
