Suspension Training TRX

This is one of those “Ok stop trying to mimic machine based or cable applied resistance” We know TRX needs content but at what cost? I need to explain one of the many TRX moves that should be wiped off your list of favorites. The fact is they are doing more harm then good. Here it is…

Dear TRX are you telling us to just do a press type movement.or are we working a chest press?

1-If we are just doing chest press type movement, where is the opposing forces via the muscle fiber direction?

2-If we are just to think of doing a press the straps are killing my arms, and to close to my body via the anchor point from above.

There is no horizontal shoulder adduction in a TRX press so let’s rule out any chest whatsoever.

Why is this important to understand? Because I am an angry trainer? HA! Yes …just kidding. Its about wasting time, and not getting quality from your workouts. The more I can inform, the better your form.
