The Journey Of TRX Education

The Journey Of TRX Education

TRX education is all about providing training with an organized set of exercises, as well as teaching skills that can help different fitness professionals. With TRX there is a certain methodology or modality that includes a set of principles that fitness professionals need to work with. These training modules center on the Suspension and the Rip trainer. There are certain concepts and applications as well as terminologies that are involved here.

Foundational Movements in TRX include courses that are essential for connecting movements and measuring the effectiveness of the same for different clients. The gear of TRX provides the right environment to establish standards of movement, clarifying what should be stable and what needs to be mobile. The courses in TRX help athletes and clients to meet the standards or checkpoints of position and transition. The other components of the movements can be modified by trained professionals as required. The Rip Trainer and Suspension trainer can be integrated into effective fitness programs already being used in other modalities. For such reasons the Functional Training course is important to supplement the foundational movements course in TRX.

The Functional training course can help to supplement the coaching training that is included in the TRX Foundational Movements. This course can help one to understand the progression from suspension training to other training modalities. The changes are achieved when different gear are used with different kinds of movement, either stable or mobile. The TRX Rip training course is the next level to pursue when movement standards of rotation are taught. Education in suspension training includes developing foundational strength while Rip Training focuses on rotational power. Trainers can use Rip Trainer as part of circuit training or as a standalone tool. However, the basics of movement coaching need to be known before that.

The other category of TRX training is TRX gear. The right coaching and learning tools make all the difference, and principles, as well as cues, are based on these tools. TRX education includes a powerful teaching method that helps incorporate the right fitness and training techniques for fitness professionals. They can then use the education they receive to devise programs of their own, which include the same standards, but can be incorporated in different training conditions. This allows flexibility to be built into diverse TRX training regimes.

Nutrition For Fitness Regimes

When you are following a fitness regime, the right kind of nutrition is important as well. What you eat as well as when you eat are crucial for any athletic or endurance training. Experts often agree that what you consume after doing a workout is of great importance. Chocolate milk has become a post-workout drink of choice while many swear by refried beans and their beneficial effects.

Importance of nutrition in the post workout phase

In the post-workout phase, you need to consume nutrients that will help you replenish your energy, increase muscle size and quality, as well as repair damage that you sustained during your workout.

Accordingly, you need to incorporate protein into your diet which will help to repair muscle tissues as well as carbohydrates that will replace the energy you expend during workouts. If you eat a balanced meal after a workout, the post workout nutrition requirements are usually met. However whole meals take the time to digest, and most people are not hungry as soon as they finish the vigorous exercise. A liquid form is easier to digest, helps to speed recovery time, and is absorbed more rapidly into the system.

How to balance nutrition with workouts?

When you undergo an intense hour of training, you need to ingest 15 grams of protein and 30 grams of carbohydrates. This can be consumed during the workout or as soon as you finish. A workout drink that includes carbs that rapidly digest as well as proteins like protein hydrolysate or isolate is sufficient. It is best to time a meal of whole foods within an hour or so after you complete a workout.

When to use nutrition drinks?

If you are doing endurance, interval, or weight training that lasts about 45 minutes or more, you need to have a workout drink ready. If you are indulging in a casual exercise like riding a bike or walking, you need not opt for a recovery drink.

Seven Moves Of TRX

If you are new to TRX there are simple moves that can help you get started. Do not feel overwhelmed with what you see around you; advanced fitness enthusiasts might be doing more complex movements, but that should not keep you from doing the simple moves that are effective as well.

With TRX you will be involved in a fast, effective and fun form of bodyweight training. You will build muscles as well as burn fat, and improve flexibility and endurance. There are seven simple moves that will help you get started. These are the pull, push, lunge, squat, hinge rotate, and plank movements. The best part of TRX is that you use your body as a machine, and this training method helps to unleash the full potential of fitness that lies within you.

Pull:  In the pull move, lean back as you hold the handles. Form a strong plank position with shoulders pulled back and held down. Maintain the plank position and pull your chest up. Then lower yourself in a controlled and slow manner, back to your original position.

Push:  The chest press is the push move that you do with the TRX handles in front. When doing this move, tighten your core and lean your weight on the handles with your knees, ankles, shoulders, and hips well aligned.  

Lunge:  The lunge move is done while both feet are in the cradles of the TRX.

Squat:  When you do the squat move, stack your elbows under your shoulders and keep your feet hip width apart.  Keep your weight on your heels as you lower your hips and come back.

Hinge:  To do the hinge move, extend your arms with your knees bent as you press down on the handles. Ensure that you bend forward from the hips.

Rotate:  Place your arms in a T position, shift your hips forward and rotate your torso.


Plank:  The plank move requires you to be in a plank push-up position with your hands under your shoulders. Tighten your core muscles as you lower your knees to ground level.

Strength Training Exercises for the Slopes

The exercises in this post will help you have the strength you need to hit the slopes this year. Each exercise should be done for sixty seconds. Allow thirty seconds to rest after each one. After you have done them all, you will want to go through them again so you can get a good fifteen-minute workout. When you do the exercises for a single leg, do one round on one leg then, on the next round, do the other leg.

Bend your knees using your hamstrings and them pull your heels close to your butt using your core throughout. Go back to the start position by moving your heels back in a slow motion.

Now work on some hip presses. Put your heels in the cradles while laying on your back. Your knees need to be bent at a ninety-degree angle. Push down on your heels and push up your hips, while engaging your core, until your hips are perfectly aligned with your shoulders and knees. Move your hips back down slowly.

Next are the mountain climbers. Place your toes in the cradles for your feet and get in a push up position. Bring one knee towards your chest while you brace your core and keep the other leg in a straight position. As you get to the top of the position, let your hips move up only slightly. Now, move your leg straight and bring your hips down to the initial position and then do the other leg. I always felt like I had done these exercises all day while climbing on roofs with my job at Surrey Roofers, but I still added these to my workout routine.

Moving on to lunges. Face the anchor point while standing. With your palms towards each other, hold the handles. Lift the first leg to the point where your thigh is in line with the floor and then bend your kneed to ninety degrees. Now push back your leg and do a downward lunge until your thigh is level with the floor then squeeze your glutes and drive through your heel to stand.

There are several other strength exercises to do to prepare you for the slopes, but these few will get you started on your way!
