Any body use the TRX suspension training ?
i was working out in my gym the other day and I noticed this suspension type thing hanging by one of the machines, I asked one of the trainers what is it and how does it work.
First a little background on me before I continue, Im 52 I compete in WKF (point sparring) 45+ mens Black Belt Division Kata and Kumite . I always worked out with weights and actually got way too bulky up to 245 lbs with the weights as I was lifting way too heavy and getting way too big to succesfully compete in competitions. So I started to just use machines and alot more cardio I lost weight which was my goal. As you know point competition is more of a speed contest then a strength contest even though as a LEO I need strength for the street.
Fast forward back to this machine ,Its called a TRX and it supposedly works the core improves strength and flexibility and supposedly alot of professional athletes are using it.
I tried it out seems pretty good , what I like about it is unlike weights which usually work in one way up and down or similiar manner this you can move side to side up and down etc.
Anybody else have experience with TRX and what do you think of it. Just curious.
