The TRX is a great tool for training both at home and at the gym, but like any piece of equipment, once you have been using it for an extended period of time you can find the training can get a little mundane. Thats why adding fun and novel exercises into your training regime can be a great way to mix things up and find a new source of motivation for training, hence why we are providing these unique exercises. Here are 4 unique and novel TRX exercises you can add to your TRX resistance training workouts.
No spam – just thoughtful training advice
The TRX Fall Out with Choas is a very unique exercise that is primarily for improving both the strength and endurance of the abdominal muscles. I also find it very useful for moving the shoulders through a challenging range of motion. It’s unlikely that you have tried this variation as it is pretty unique, so have some fun and give it a go. If you’re very advanced you may want to give the single leg version a try.
The Advanced TRX Serratus Slide with Bear Crawl is a very unique exercise, exercises with names that long tend to be extremely unique. This exercise is only for advanced individuals with strong cores and stable shoulders, however even if you’re very advanced this exercise will still manage to pose a great deal of challenge.
The TRX Archer Row is less unique than the previous two exercises, but is still rarely seen in training programmes written by individuals and coaches. It really is an excellent exercise, a brilliant bridge between intermediate and advanced difficulty. Beginners will struggle with this exercise and should use an easier variation like the classic TRX row.
The TRX Single Leg Hamstring Pull In is rarely seen in training programmes, making it a very unique TRX exercise that you can add to your training plan. It needs to be done slowly and with control, especially as the hamstring arrives at the end of its range of motion. If you rush this exercise you risk injuring your hamstring. This is for very advanced individuals who are already competent with the TRX hamstring pull in .
