It’s remarkable what you can often do with just one piece of equipment. TRX Suspension Training bands are a prime example: Those black and yellow straps hanging (usually) from the ceiling can build upper and lower body strength, core stability, balance, and flexibility. That means working your entire body! Test lots of exercises to find your favorites, but then make sure to keep expanding your TRX knowledge so you’re pushing yourself and getting the full effect. These TRX workouts, moving from beginner to advanced, should do the trick. And remember, you can make simple adjustments on many TRX exercises to increase difficulty as you’d like: Try it one-sided, raise one leg, or increase your depth to make the movement even harder.
