Everyone can benefit from Suspension Training®. Because the user can effortlessly control the resistance and level of difficulty by simply shifting the position of their body, the TRX® Suspension Trainer Professional is perfect for gentle rehabilitation, hardcore athletic training, and everything in between. Suspension Training® also allows for complete ranges of motion while training which allows for a more functional workout routine.
Traditional weight training often only works one muscle at a time which is contradictory to the normal coordinated muscle effort used to complete most activities. Focusing on only one muscle at a time is more likely to lead to overuse injuries and muscular imbalances, as well as potentially limit strength and movement gains. Suspension Training® allows for the use of multiple planes of motion and works multiple muscles and joints simultaneously.
Many physical therapists are currently using the TRX® to help their patients recover from various injures. The ease of adjusting resistance, functionality of using body weight and the closed kinetic chain nature of many of the exercises make it a very powerful tool for this type of use.
