What is TRX?
TRX suspension belts are an imitation of gymnastic rings fixed to a ceiling, a crossbar or on a hook in a wall. Belts are made of durable nylon and have special loops at the ends for holding hands or feet, allowing you to perform various exercises with body weight.
Training with TRX harnesses develop basic and stabilizing muscles, increase coordination of movements, positively affect the condition of joints and ligaments. The name "TRX" is a trademark - there are many similar belts from other manufacturers.
The history of the TRX
The TRX training system and suspension belts were invented in the mid-1990s by Randy Haetrick, a member of the US Navy's Special Forces Marine Seal. The first belts were made of parachute straps, and their purpose was to maintain a physical shape in the absence of bulky equipment.
Initially, the prototype of the TRX belts was used in training for marines, and in 2004 their full-fledged commercial release was established. A few years later, TRX launched special courses for trainers, and then there were videos for training home training.
Pros of training with hanging belts
The main advantage of belts for hanging training is compactness. A set of equipment, including tapes, various handles and locks, weighs no more than one and a half kilograms. If there is a fixing point, you can train in almost any conditions.
The second plus of TRX belts is the possibility of using in physiotherapy and in training of people who are not allowed to train with additional weight according to medical recommendations. Third plus - the possibility of conducting a fat burning circular training with a minimum of equipment.
Training for the development of muscles of the body
Hanging training significantly improves the coordination of movements and muscular endurance. Due to the constant need to maintain balance, a lot of small stabilizing muscles that are inactive in performing normal basic exercises are included in the work.
Regular exercise of various exercises with TRX belts creates a healthy posture, as a person learns to "keep" his body properly. Such training is an important tool for the harmonious development of muscles and the creation of a sports figure.
The best exercises with the TRX
Training with TRX hanging belts can be used either as a substitute for normal power trainings in "marching" or at home conditions, as well as an effective tool for improving posture or burning excess fat( when doing exercises in a circular workout).
