Strength training is essential for anyone looking to get in shape or maintain fitness for aerobic activities like running. In the beautifully warm weather of summer, you can get motivated to use more strengthening exercises by moving your workout outside with these portable yet highly effective systems.
TRX suspension straps are seen in cross-fit classes, which have become incredibly popular for people of all ages and fitness levels. You can take these workouts home and use them virtually anywhere outdoors as long as you have a sturdy anchor for the two resistance straps. These straps encourage workouts from the “plank” position, which has the body in a straight line away from the floor. This position requires great strength in the core, so you can achieve the sculpted abs you have always wanted with these simple pieces of equipment.
TRX Rip Trainer
The Rip Trainer is another suspension-based workout system from TRX, and it is just as portable as the suspension straps. The Rip Trainer has a resistance band attached to a solid bar that allows the body to use rotational movements that mimic the actions used in high-intensity sports like tennis or basketball. Both the Rip Trainer and Suspension systems come with store-and-carry bags that will make it easy to take your workout anywhere your summer travels may take you.
