Here comes the old days ‘Gym Bro Adam’…

“There’s no way you’ll build any leg muscles with a suspension trainer bro, you’ve got to use a gym and squat racks!”

Don’t listen to ‘gym-bro Adam’.

If you find suspension trainer squats or lunges too easy?…

Then this video is for you.

I’m going to show you one TRX Suspension Trainer leg exercise and how to modify it, to make it 10X harder.

(You can do this technique modification to all suspension trainer exercises too)

It’s going to get your quads burning and it’s going to get you building serious leg muscle and serious strength.

Underneath the video I’ll give you some detailed info on why it’s hard and the step by step technique for this TRX leg exercise….

The reason these TRX leg exercises are so hard is because you’re going to do one and a half reps

And you’re also using a really long tempo of 14 seconds per rep.

Applying This To TRX Suspension Trainer Pistol Squats

You can apply this same principle to all exercises by the way.

But it works very well with pistol squats.

The tempo is going to look like this:

  • 4 seconds down
  • 2 seconds back up halfway
  • 2 seconds down
  • 4 seconds up
  • 2 seconds super hard squeeze at the top

That’s one rep.

Yep, it’s long but it leads to great muscle building results.

Step #1 – going down

Squeeze your quad muscle at the top super hard before you go down.

Maintain that squeeze as you go down slowly.

Step #2 – half rep

As you approach the bottom, don’t drop or rest at the bottom. Pause and maintain the tension on the quad leg muscles.

Then squeeze the quad even harder to squat back up but ONLY to the halfway point.

Pause.

Then slowly back down. Maintaining the same key technique as above.

Step #3 – squeezing back up

Then, squeeze the quad hard again to squat all the way back up.

This shouldn’t be explosive. It should be controlled.

The only movement caused should be because you squeezed your quad muscle to cause the movement.

No momentum of jerking up.

Then squeeze your quad muscle super hard at the top for 2 seconds.

That’s your rep done.

If you wanted to make this harder, you could add a weighted belt, but honestly, just try it with body weight first.

The first one or two, you’re gonna think, this isn’t too bad.

When you get to three, four, five, six, the tension and the burn on the quad gets awesome

Extra Add-On Finisher

As soon as you’re toast on the upward squat phase and you can’t do any more.

Just focus on doing the negative phase.

That means going down, but doing it very slowly over 10 seconds.

Then stand back up using both feet and repeat for another 3-4 times on that one leg.

You’re going to feel that burn in the quads and it feels fantastic.
