Great TRX Band Workouts

TRX bands are an excellent piece of equipment to use in your workouts. TThese bands allow for a wide range of exercises that can be done while holding the TRX band, which is attached to an anchor point by a strap. TRX bands can be used at home or in any type of gym setting. These workouts should include strength training, cardio, and stretching to maximize results. This blog post will provide three different Band Workouts for you to try!

Workout #1: Push-Pull

The 1st option is what I call “The Push-Pull” It consists of doing squats on each side with alternating pushups between reps. Here is how to do it:

  • Stand on TRX band with feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Keeping your chest up and core tight, squat down until thighs are parallel to ground.
  • Bring TRX back in line with knees still bent as you stand up. Then immediately push up out of the bottom position while keeping your legs stationary (no kicking them back).

Continue alternating sides for one minute straight! TRX Band Workouts should always be done at a level that challenges you without putting too much strain or stress on joints or muscles. To modify this TRX Band Workout, simply put TRX around ankles instead of over shoulders if needed.

Workout #2: Legs Up

The 2nd workout is called “Legs Up” This exercise really targets those legs. Here is how to do it:

  • Stand on TRX band with feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Put your legs straight up into a tabletop position. Engage core muscles and keep them engaged throughout the entire exercise!

**If you have trouble maintaining form, place TRX around ankles instead of over shoulders for less stress on the lower back.

Workout #3: TRX Squat

The TRX squat is a great way to work your legs and butt. Here is how you do it:

  • With TRX placed over shoulders, step out about twice shoulder-width apart. Feet should be facing forward or turned outward slightly depending on your level of comfort with balance.
  • Engage core muscles and lower down until thighs are parallel to the floor (or as close as possible) — keep back straight throughout movement! Return to an upright position by squeezing glutes at top of the motion.

If this exercise becomes easier for you try placing TRX around ankles instead of over shoulders for more support and less strain on knees/back. You can also turn sideways for an increased workout.

Conclusion:

TRX Band Workouts are a great way to get in shape, build muscle, and become more fit. No gym membership is required and there are many different exercises that can be done to get in shape!
