TRX / Suspension Training: Best Bang for Your Buck
by Damon Vincent, CSCS, TRX
Our time with clients comes at a high price. Both their time and our time are extremely valuable. How do we ensure that they get the Best Bang for their Buck? Of all the different training modalities in the gym, suspension training has one of the highest return on investments. Think about how you normally may program strength training and core training in the same session. With suspension training you could effectively hit both of these goals in one exercise while also causing a higher metabolic demand on the body. For our athletic populations, this means that we work them in a more functional and multi-planar motion. For our general populations, this means helping us with our body composition goals. This session will surely have a something valuable for everyone.
