TRX/Jungle Straps

Jungle straps are a great tool to use at home for a wonderful workout. They work out your body and help improve strength, stability, and tone your muscles. They allow you to burn calories to help with weight loss as well as decrease your likelihood of cardiovascular disease. Here are a few reasons why you should consider using TRX/Jungle straps.

What is TRX?

TRX stands for Total-Body Resistant exercise. These straps are usually hung from the ceiling or from the wall. These straps were created in the Navy SEAL. The point of a TRX workout is to use your own body weight against gravity. You have to use the straps to maintain balance, which forces you to engage your core.

Types of TRX Workouts:

  • Push-ups
  • Hamstring pulls/curls
  • Lunges
  • Chest press

Benefits of TRX:

Total Body Workout

This workout can build strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core + joint stability. This can help you achieve any fitness goal.

Built Up Core

Having a strong core is the key; without a strong core, your knees and ankles are more susceptible to injury. TRX works on your abs, obliques, and lower back.

Anyone Can Do It

It’s all about your body position, which controls the resistance level. You are in control of how much you want to challenge yourself based on your personal skill level. Due to its low impact nature, people of all ages and skill levels are allowed to participate in TRX training.

Mobile

The best part about the TRX straps is that you have the ability to take them anywhere. Whether you are on vacation or at home, you can use the TRX straps. The only requirement is hooking them up to a wall or ceiling.

Safety Tips:

  • Warm up properly
  • Double check that the strap is properly fastened
  • Wear proper footwear 
  • Check body angles for proper engagement of your core
