TRX exercises are workouts in suspension where your legs or hands are held in the TRX equipment while the opposite body part is supported on the floor.
With TRX (Total Resistance eXercise) your entire body will be engaged and you’ll gain more strength, flexibility and mobility overall.
Most of the TRX exercises have a huge impact on your abdominal muscles, which are engaged whenever your legs or arm are suspended.
Below are 10 most effective TRX exercises. Feel free to add some of them to your current workout, or do all of them as a full body workout.
