Today I am going to share with you the most asked about question that Dan Long is always asked and that is why did he get into TRX workouts and suspension training.
It mostly comes down to one thing and that is he got tired of boring exercises and doing the same routines week after week. When he got into suspension training there was no one really dominating the suspension apparatus and got hooked into it at the Powerhouse Gym in Tampa.
About TRX Training and Why Do It
Benefits of Suspension Training
Dan Long used to suffer a lot from lower back pain. His L4 and L5 disk were totally out of place and this meant no more heavy lifting. Once he got into suspension exercises, this all changed. His back is much stronger because of core strengthening and he has no more pain.
The beauty of working out with suspension straps is that you are not using any added weights so there is no extra pressure being applied to your joints.
You are only using your body weight as resistance. With the wide range of exercises available with TRX, you will strengthen your core, build and tone your muscles, look and feel excellent. Dan even goes on to say that he is in the best shape of his life, thanks to suspension workouts.
TRX Workouts Targets Your Core
The main focus of TRX workouts is the core. With the suspension apparatus or TRX straps, you are always engaging the core when you are working out. You not sitting or lying down, you are always at an angle and this is what helps strengthen your core.
TRX Training Builds a Strong Core!
Once you go through the initial 2 weeks of suspension training, you will feel a huge difference and you will start to intensify your workouts. This it the immediate impact of training suspension. It just gets results right away and you will notice and benefit from this.
Having a strong core will help you push yourself a little more and by doing this you will see excellent results a lot sooner than if you we still throwing the same weights around.
What more can you get out of doing the same bicep curl over and over again!
Once you start feeling stronger and want to go to the next level, you can change your body angle. This makes the workout more intense and more engaging. There is no limits really to what you can achieve with the suspension apparatus.
TRX training is for every level. You do not have to be an expert to start training with TRX. When you join Dan Long’s Suspension Revolution, there is a beginner, intermediate and advanced level. So as a first time TRX’er, you will start with beginner and work yourself up to advanced.
Dan has excellent instructions laid out for you to follow and each exercises is well explain. It does take a little getting used as it is a new equipment for you. But by the second week you will be well into it and enjoying every minute of it. I have been doing it for 9 months now and its the only workout that I do.
