Looking for a quick and effective workout to start your weekend off?

Well this TRX workout will challenge your body and help to tone and strengthen your muscles in the process. All you need is a TRX – which you can use at home, in the park, or at your local gym.

This workout, designed by Anthony Mayatt, personal trainer and owner of Breathe Fitness, is all about functional movement.

‘In TRX we have seven foundational movements – as in different ways the body moves,’ says Anthony.

‘This workout is designed mainly for a beginner, generic mysoline no prescription but can also be adjusted for an advanced individual to work harder.’

The 7 foundational movements are pull, squat, lunge, push, rotate, hinge and plank.

Anthony says: ‘The TRX Suspension Trainer is a bodyweight tool used to put your body into an unstable position and bring out your weaknesses.

‘An exercise can be made easier or harder solely by changing the angle of your body so its entirely up to you how easy or hard you work. No matter the exercise your core will be working due to the instability so more muscles will be working and your posture will improve session by session.’

Keywords to know:

  • Anchor point: Where your trx is attached to the ceiling/door
  • Strap length: How long your trx is set for each exercise

TRX foundational movement workout

‘In the video below you will see linked below I will perform roughly 10 repetitions per movement,’ sys Anthony.

‘You can adjust this yourself if you want to work harder so generally say 10 for beginner, 15 for intermediate and 20 more advanced.

Use round 1 to really focus on technique then in further rounds try to progress by changing your angle, stability etc.’
