Suspension training device was conceived in the Navy SEALs, TRX Suspension Training use body weight exercise to simultaneously develop strength, power, endurance, mobility, durability, balance, flexibility, and core stability.
TRX Suspension Training is a highly portable performance training tool that leverages gravity and uses your bodyweight to enable hundreds of exercises that can be instantly scaled for any user to reach any fitness or training goal. Invented by former Navy SEAL Randy Hetrick, the TRX Tactical Suspension Trainer bodyweight system is the lightest, most versatile functional training system on earth. Anchor it to a tank, Conex box or tree and perform a wide variety of exercises that leverage your own bodyweight to build the strength, balance and core stability you need for PT, for your mission and in life. You will find this device used by the military, sports team, fitness clubs and more.
TRX SUSPENSION TRAINING PRINCIPLES
Three principles enable you to instantly scale TRX Suspension Training movements.
VECTOR RESISTANCE PRINCIPLE
For most standing movements, positioning your feet closer to the anchor point will increase resistance and heighten the challenge. Stepping farther away from the anchor point will decrease resistance and make movements easier to execute.
For ground-based movements, moving your feet away from the anchor point will increase resistance and heighten the challenge. Moving your feet towards the anchor point or behind the anchor point will decrease resistance and make movements easier to execute.
In general, performing movements with a narrower base of support or unilaterally (using just one arm or just one leg instead of both arms or both legs) will increase the challenge of TRX movements. The wider your base of support, the more stable you will be during TRX movements and the less challenging they will be to perform.
However, many do not know where to start or to take advantage of all that it offers. That’s why we made this post. Tryout these TRX Exercises and Tips:

This is called distal mobility, and will make you perform better in sport, and in life.
