TRX Suspension Training and Core

Wednesday, August 8, 2012


Hi everyone,
It has been awhile since I have posted, but I want to share with you how excited I am about these new High Intensity Interval training (HIIT) sessions I have been using lately. The basis behind HIIT are six to ten repetitions of high intensity exercise (4-6 sets), separated by medium intensity exercise or  a very short break.(1 minute). Most sessions only last between 8-12 minutes and never more than 20. This form of circuit training burns a lot of calories, increases endurance and strength. A lot of the exercises focus around your core and mainly consist of body weight exercises, but some exercises do incorporate weight as well. Here is an example program with the video to demonstrate. Thank you BodyRock! (
