The 5 Best Starting TRX Suspension Trainer Exercises Guide With Video Technique

July 05, 2024

If you’re struggling to build lean muscle, burn fat, and transform your body with a suspension trainer (like a TRX), you’re not alone.

Most people mindlessly jump around, pushing-pulling-hanging.

The results?

  • A bit of sweat

The outcome?

  • Believing you can’t transform your body with a suspension trainer
  • De-motivated because you aren’t seeing any visible changes
  • Frustrated at another ‘fitness method’ you’ve tried that hasn’t worked
  • Throwing it in the cupboard to gather dust

What a waste.

Back in 2016 I began coaching clients on how to use a suspension trainer with ‘Muscle- Centric Technique.’

The results were fantastic!

It opened up a whole new way to train with a suspension trainer to build lean muscle and transforming your body…

You Too Can Use This Technique To Transform Your Body, Today

If you use this technique with a suspension trainer correctly…

You’ll build lean muscle, burn fat, and increase your functional strength.

So you can start seeing changes in the mirror, fast.

In this post, I’ll teach you this effective ‘Muscle-Centric Technique’ at a beginner level with the 5 best suspension trainer exercises to start with.

And how to perform them properly for maximum results.

Let’s get to it…

The Best TRX Suspension Trainer Chest Exercise

The time under tension and stretch you can achieve with suspension trainer chest exercises…

Works the chest muscle fibres through a full range of motion to depletion.

Which means you get a muscle growth stimulus across the whole chest area.

TRX Exercise #1 – TRX Suspension Trainer Chest Press

The main TRX suspension trainer exercise with a lot of bang for your buck, incorporating many secondary and stabilising muscles.

The Best TRX Suspension Trainer Shoulder & Back Exercises

The constant stabilising needed when doing TRX suspension trainer back exercises develops multiple areas. I’ve noticed breadth and thickness within the muscles.

Another huge secondary muscle incorporation with most suspension trainer exercises are the shoulders.

Since I ditched the weights for the suspension trainer my rotator cuffs don’t click any more and my stability and shoulder girdle strength is the best it’s been.

TRX Exercise #2 – TRX Suspension Trainer Back Pull / Row

It’s all about slow controlled technique to get the most out of TRX Suspension Trainer Back Pulls.

I always focus on a large squeeze at the top of the contraction to really work the muscle.

TRX Exercise #3. TRX Suspension Trainer Y’s For Shoulders

A little tricky to get the technique down correctly with the TRX Y’s…

But once it’s nailed they incorporate a huge amount of secondary muscles along with the primary middle and rear deltoids.

Back muscles and core stabilisers also take a blasting. Now give me a Y!

The Best TRX Suspension Trainer Legs Exercise

Not only have my little chicken legs developed more than when I used weights, but my hip flexors are stronger, flexibility is greater and my cardio output is higher.

TRX Exercise #4. TRX Suspension Trainer Pistol Squats For Legs

I’ve added more growth to my legs doing these than any other legs exercise.

Best TRX Suspension Trainer Exercise For Core

I find I don’t need to do many TRX Suspension Trainer abs exercises because they’re constantly worked in 90% of all exercises through stabilisation. But when I do, this one is king.

TRX Exercise #5 – TRX Suspension Trainer Abs Crunch

Whenever I want to build some insane stability and strength in my core, I crunch.

If you take the time to slow down with each TRX Suspension Trainer exercise, connect with your muscle (the squeeze), and use a full range of motion…

You will build lean muscle. And more muscle means you burn more fat at rest.

It also means you’ll be able to move better and enjoy life more.

AND it increase your metabolism. So you can eat more without gaining weight.

Plus adding muscle definition gives your physique an aesthetic shape. So your partner won’t be able to keep their hands off you!

You can see why this muscle-centric suspension trainer technique is so powerful. If you’re interested in removing the guesswork from your training and nutrition.
