All About TRX Suspension Training


Let's face it...while we all would love to hit the gym an hour a day, five days a week, our lifestyles often won't allow that to happen. Just because you're hard-pressed for time doesn't mean you can't be active. Here's a simple, at-home, at the gym or at the park, 15 Minute TRX Total Body Workout to get you going when time isn't on your side.

Not only do total body workouts compress your workout time, but they can also help boost your overall metabolism and help you achieve overall fitness.

Directions: Perform each exercise for one set consisting of as many repetitions as you can for 25 seconds. Then rest for 5 seconds before beginning the next exercise. Once completed with all exercises, rest for 25 seconds then complete two more sets of each exercise.
