This is common when first starting.
Using a TRX to exercise requires stability in all areas of your body especially your core, shoulder girdle and hips.
The shaking primarily comes from your lack of strength instability around those areas and little stabilising muscle throughout the body.
Your stabilisation muscles will strengthen over time and thus you will develop stability over time.
When I first started training with a TRX many years back I was only ‘gym strong’.
Not what I would term ‘functional fitness’ strong.
For example, I could deadlift close to 200kg at 76kg bodyweight.
But I couldn’t hold myself steady without shaking when performing a TRX chest press or TRX abs superman.
- shoulder aches
- rotator cuff pains
- imbalances, hip aches
- lower back problems
for years of being a typical ‘gym guy’.
After 3-4 months of leaving the gym behind and training only with TRX and the muscle-centric technique.
I had no shoulder pain, increased flexibility and a solid foundation of strength in the previously mentioned areas.
I was able to hold my body weight in many positions and ways with great form and stability.
My physique balance improved and I could finally reach up for a mug out of the cupboard without worrying about my shoulder twinging.
Ultimately it’s a great thing to initially experience.
The shakes mean you are challenging your body in ways it is not used to and so your body will adapt and grow to match the challenge.
You will have greater results, faster.
Do you want the ability to build lean muscle and transform you body with just a TRX suspension Trainer or resistance band?
