Today I’m going to show you a few cool exercises you can do with the TRX Straps. Everyone knows by now that I am a huge fan of heavy, traditional exercises like squats and deadlifts, but for years I have always preached the value of bodyweight exercises and moving your body through space. This elicits a higher level of neuromuscular activation than simply moving your limbs around a fixed object and helps you build muscle and develop strength faster. Most of my workouts include some kind of big heavy barbell or dumbbell lift for maximal strength development followed by primarily bodyweight exercises, often done with the TRX Straps.
TRX Exercise #1: Bicep Curls
TRX Exercise #2: Triceps Extensions
TRX Exercise #3: Inverted Rows
TRX Exercise #4: Low Ab Pull In’s
TRX Exercise #5: Body Saw Abdominal Exercise
TRX Exercise#6: Rotational Ab Pull Ins
TRX Exercise #7: Swimmers
TRX Exercise #8: Standing Ab Fall Outs
TRX Exercise #9: Face Pull with External Rotation
TRX Exercise #10: Face Pull
TRX Exercise #11: Sled Drags
Remember, whenever you move your own bodyweight through space you produce more full body tension and elicit greater neuromuscular activation. This leads to faster gains in muscle and strength. Another great thing about the TRX is that you never have an excuse to miss a workout. If you travel a lot simply pack your TRX in your suitcase and all you need is somewhere to hook it up to get a killer full body workout in.
