This holiday season add TRX Suspension Training to your routine
November 25, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsTRX is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to build strength, power, and flexibility. TRX was invented by a former US Navy Seal who wanted to keep in top shape when he was in the field. The TRX Suspension Training system is a portable, lightweight unit, made from heavy-duty nylon webbing that attaches to any fixed anchor such as a door, a tree, or an outdoor swing.
The TRX Suspension Training system uses bodyweight with resistance exercises. Exercise routines based on resistance training can result in increased power and agility, and reduced risk of injury in physical activities.
Because of its portability, low impact, and focus on muscular endurance, TRX is the ideal strength training solution for runners, swimmers, triathletes, cyclists, cross-country skiers, and endurance athletes of all types.
TRX "will help improve power, strength, and flexibility, which are key training considerations for athletes seeking to improve performance and avoid injury", says Sean Young, vice-president of athleti.ca, a TRX Canada dealer.
There are three models from TRX to choose from. The TRX Pro Kit, which includes the TRX Suspension Trainer, a door anchor, a carrying case, a 65-minute workout DVD, and a 35-page workout guide. The TRX Rip Trainer utilizes a lever bar and resistance cord to provide a simple method for adding rotational movements to your TRX training program. The TRX FORCE Kit: Tactical is the military version of the TRX Pro Kit, but it can be used by anybody. It includes an anchor Xtender, a 12-week comprehensive training program, and a waterproof and tearproof workout guide.
