The First 3 TRX’ing Steps to Transforming Your Physique

August 13, 2020

The First 3 TRX’ing Steps to Transforming Your Physique. The 3 steps explained below! Using a TRX Bicep Curl as an example:

STEP 1: THE SETUP⁣

  • Precisely setting up is key.⁣
  • We need to ensure the muscle we’re training is doing the most work.⁣
  • First check the handles. Make sure they’re balanced and symmetrical in how they sit⁣.
  • I like to begin the setup at where I’m aiming to end = the hard contraction at the top of the curl.⁣
  • Find the appropriate tension on the straps by moving the feet in or out and balancing the straps.⁣

STEP 2: STABILISE⁣

  • Find the most comfortable position to lock your feet in. For me that’s an athletic shoulder width stance.
  • Now mentally lock-in and focus on THE ONE MUSCLE that’s going to cause the movement = BICEPS⁣
  • DO NOT LOSE THIS STABILITY AND FOCUS. Do not move. Do not bounce.⁣
  • Picture holding your entire body in stone.⁣
  • All that is free to move (contract and lengthen) is the bicep muscle

STEP 3: INITIATE AND LOAD⁣

  • Now we’re set up and locked in it’s time to begin loading the muscle with tension through hard contracting and slow controlled lengthening.⁣
  • Make sure the muscle we’re working MOVES FIRST. This is the key to making the muscle do the work.⁣
  • Focus on breathing – an advanced form of training is using only nasal breathing (I’ll do a separate post on why).⁣
  • Breathe in for the longer downwards lengthening of the biceps phase⁣
  • Sharp breath out for the short contract curl phase.⁣

When to do this? ALWAYS.⁣

Every single set, every single exercise.⁣

I learnt this 3 step approach years back from one of my favourite yogi bodybuilding athletes Ben Pakulski.⁣

I’ve slightly adapted it over time. Practicing this makes a big difference in the long run.⁣

Eventually it becomes habit and not something that needs thinking about.⁣

Stay safe stay healthy⁣

Losing Stubborn Belly Fat Let’s Talk About It…
