Workout 1: TRX Total Body
Posted on March 29 2018
With March and April full of public holidays, we tend to get into the holiday mode, avoiding the gym at all costs or we have decided to take those few days leave that equals 3 weeks of work and go on holiday. No matter where in the world you are, if you have your TRX you can do a work out.
To keep you active during this period I have designed 3 workouts for you that can be done anywhere at any time. Today we have a basic full body workout, in the next blog a nice HIIT workout and lastly a power workout.
Before we start to train, please make sure that you have properly warmed up. A good RAMP (of motion, Activation and Movement Prep) session will have you increasing your internal temperature, getting the joints to move and the muscles activated and ready to go.
The Basic Workout
The basic workout will take you about 20 minutes to complete. It is a mix of Bodyweight exercises and TRX exercises.
1b) TRX Hip Drop (left and right)
1c) Side Plank (left and Right)
Perform each exercise for 20 seconds. You want to complete all three exercises in succession. You should only rest at the end of the set. Rest for 90 seconds and repeat one more time.
2a) TRX Squat
2b) TRX mid row
2c) TRX alternating lunge
2d) TRX Push up
2e) TRX Hip press
Perform each exercise for 30 seconds. Complete all the exercises in succession and only rest after the last exercise. Rest for 2 minutes and repeat the set 3-4 more times.
Once you have completed the workout make sure you cool down. A good self-myofascial release session is a great way to end a program. Don’t have a foam roller, click here to buy one.
