    Has anyone else used the TRX system and integrate it into their regular workouts? For those not familiar with suspension training, it's an exercise craze among athletes, fitness trainers, and other fitness enthusiasts. After my first use, I was definitely sore.

    I'm still a relative newbie to the TRX and would like to expand my training with the device. Please post some of your favourite TRX exercises.

    Thanks for the input US. Sadly this topic won't be going anywhere. How do I delete a topic from the forum?

    Adding a Link to something so that those who don't know what it is can check it out is often helpful in spurring on a forum post.

    I've been working at a conference where a couple of guys are selling this. I found it intriging and I might try it out after my current program is overwith. The system is supposedly popular with military like myself due to it's portability. I look forward to using it.

    I just got the TRX a few weeks ago and learning it. I like it as an option to weights. Plus I can take it outside. And for personal training purposes it travels nicely.

    Hey!:
    I took the TRX training course this summer in NYC and found it to be awesome. Great instructors too!
    I personal train north of NYC and have found that perhaps only a few of my clients have a strong enough core, hip, and shoulder/rotator cuff stability to effectively use the TRX system. I will eventually incorporate a few exercises into their program as far as an overall program, rather than make the TRX system the complete program.
    I myself like to use the TRX for transverse plane work and still have to discover more uses for the TRX. I have the CDs and training manual and will test out more exercises later this fall.

    All the best and train hard!

    Dave in NY

    My trainer uses this extensively and I really like it. After only a couple of sessions on it, I could tell my stability was way better.

    My trainer likes to throw in a different TRX exercise every once in a while. My two favorites are atomic push ups and an inverted row with my feet on the wall.

    thank you bcpm for your post...it's a regular part of a soldier's training. It's excellent. like mad says, it's an addition to everything else we do. I agree the lower body exercises are harder.

    all you guys look incredible. Happy pride--- hope you guys can make it to Montreal this year for Diver.cite.

    40/40 challenge is a great start!
    Atomic Pushup + Low Row.

    One take, no rest and go, core tight all the time.
    Correct form is a must.
    60 seconds rest between the two moves.
    See how many you can give with one go.

    Mine is 36/27. icon_redface.gif


    And there is a new one:
    10/10/10 challenge. Even crazier...


    Personally I love the "Lunge with Hope" move.
    Sometimes will give it something extra by adding a "Knee to the Pad" as I hope. This will need someone to hold a pad in front of you though.

    I'm dying to try this, actually. Hopefully someone will be demo'ing/selling it at the CanFitPro conference next month.

    There's one guy at one of my gyms who brings his with him to use at the gym--I'd love to try it even if he is kind of an arse for tying up a piece of equipment he's not using when the gym is full on a Saturday afternoon (he ties it to the only dip/pull-up station).

    I have the Force Kit version, but have not integrated it with my weight lifting. Not yet using it consistently.
