Learn the Best TRX Exercises for Your Experience Level

In 1997, Navy SEAL Randy Hetrick was on deployment and wanted to get in a solid workout. According to legend, he created his first version of the TRX suspension training system out of a jiu-jitsu belt and parachute webbing. Nowadays, you don’t need to know martial arts or have access to a parachute to reap the benefits of suspension training.

Today, TRX trainers are found in most commercial and home gyms. One reason is their portability and small space investment. Another is that TRX training exercises are easily scalable, making them accessible for lifters from beginners to advanced competitive athletes. The beauty of the TRX is that you can scale bodyweight exercises like push-ups and rows by simply altering your foot placement.
