Trx exercises: performance technique

Before performing a set of exercises, it is necessary to warm up the muscles for 10 minutes. To do this, you can do squats, pushups, run on the spot, jump over the rope, etc.

It is necessary to perform the exercises exactly in the sequence in which they are described, to observe the intervals.

For a basic level, the intervals between exercises should be 50 seconds, and for a difficult level - 20 seconds.

During the exercise on the simulator, position your body at such an angle that the last repetitions are given to you with great difficulty. This is necessary to achieve optimal results. If you have difficulty in performing an exercise, change the angle of the load.

Move smoothly from basic to complex.

When you master a difficult level of training, increase the angle of the load or do the exercises at an accelerated pace.
