conditioning – TRX Suspension Training

Suspension training is ideal for home conditioning. Body weight training.

One review:

Bodyweight exercises that are challenging for conditioned trainers yet simple for beginners to learn and execute.

The TRX weighs less than two pounds and can easily be brought on a business trip or put in a drawer while not in use. You can use the gym almost anywhere: attach it to a door in your house, hang it from a weight rack, mount it to a beam in the garage or take it outside and use it at the local playground or park. …

Start young. Do not rush. The gymnast must be strong enough at the end range of the shoulder flexion / upper back extension – with straight legs – before lowering the target surface. Psychological confidence is as important as physical preparation before moving to low Beam.

Happily, almost every girl on every team can achieve this drill. If they work it enough. This range of motion is trainable 🙂
