About 3 years ago, I started TRX training. It was hard, but I didn’t see how it would build my muscle strength over weight training. After 2 months of TRX training, people started to ask me what I was doing to build and cut my arm muscles…now I try to include TRX training into my schedule at least once a week.
I love the versatility of TRX training. I can include dumbbells, mini bands, do Pilates, Yoga, HIIT, strength training, etc.
Today though I wanted a quick and effective routine. My kids were in full force and I knew my time was limited.
I picked a few of my favorite moves for 30 seconds work with little rest for 3 rounds. It’s hard for me to count reps with my kids yelling and running around me. I also chose little rest because my time is limited and I want to keep my heart rate up.
30 seconds for 3 rounds with rest as needed:
- Pistol squats (per leg)
- Balance lunge (per leg)
- Overhead Back Extension
- Curtsy Lunge with Kick (per leg)
- Jump Squats
- Bicep curls
- Tricep Extension
The reality of my workout, I was a moving target for my kids to shoot with their nerf guns. It was good motivation to make me move faster.
The aftermath, I somehow survived
But I was able to get one of my assailants to take a few action photographs for me.
