I became part of “The Movement” well before my injury. My good friend who also happens to be the Director of Fitness at my gym introduced me to TRX. I looked at the TRX bands and images of Tony Little danced through my head. I might have made a sarcastic comment, but then the workout began. Lets say TRX earned my respect that day. Nothing against Tony, I’m sure you understand.
After that, I started using the TRX suspension trainer at my local gym so much that I contemplated buying the system for my garage and just canceling my membership. All I can say is, I should have, but I’m a sucker for a sauna…… DAMN YOU SAUNA!
After my injury TRX is still proving its worth and results for me. I have limited motion and strength in my shoulder, but with the versatility of the TRX system I can adjust the load on the exercise as I need and it’s even helping me stretch out and increase my range of motion. So not only am I increasing strength (slowly) but I’m helping increase my range of motion (My PT is very happy with my progress so far).
If you haven’t used the system I recommend it highly. The video above has a bunch of clips by TRX one after the other. Once you get with the movement your Shake Weight will be rusty with jealousy, collecting dust on the shelf.
Sorry Shake Weight.
