Why TRX training is so good?

What is TRX?

TRX is Total Body Resistance Exercise. Invented by a Navy SEAL; Aaron Baldwin. Although techniques like this have been used in a similar fashion throughout history; using the environment as a gym. Bruce Lee used techniques such as ice lifting, which was trying to push immovable objects to develop a core strength.

Suspension Training bodyweight exercise develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. TRX is a full-body strength workout that utilizes a person’s own body weight instead of relying on machines or dumbbells. It’s good for endurance athletes, power lifters, and fitness newbies alike.
