Benefits of TRX Suspension Training… by NCSF

The National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF) published the following overview of TRX Suspension Training.  Here are a few excerpts from the article:

“Suspension training appears to be a novel method of exercise with explicit benefits.”

“Suspension training creates a unique training stress for proprioceptive and stability enhancement not commonly experienced during more traditional training approaches.”

“It forces the participant to engage the ‘core’ musculature at all times to maintain proper body alignment… which can translate into enhanced core stability.”

“Suspension training has significant balance and coordination requirements, and forces the participant to train the body as a functional unit.”

“Overall, suspension training seems to be a great variation to reduce boredom, introduce different joint stresses to a program, and address multiple components of performance with each individual exercise.”
