TRX and Yoga

Life after college has two paths….either you go and travel the world or get pushed into the workforce.  Either way, health becomes something that post-college grads begin to forget about.

Luckily, we found something this week that can transform the lives of busy athletes and “real world” workerbees.  TRX is a suspension training that uses body weight to complete a full-body workout.  At first, the two black straps hanging from the ceiling was intimidating, but once we got to play around on them, our muscles already felt stronger.  We had the priviledge of attending the all day training at the TRX Headquarters in SF, and left with a new feeling of motivation and creativity.

It only makes sense that TRX and yoga go together.  Whether you are living in hotel rooms and finding somewhere to workout or using your office for quick workouts at lunch, you can bring the portable TRX and accompanying yoga mat and get your sweat on.

Here’s a quick exercise to do if you are already an TRX owner:

High Plank with Tricep Touch:

Sitting on your knees with the TRX behind you, place your feet in the TRX hand straps.  Flex your feet and come up into a high plank position.  Hold for 10 seconds to activate the core; pull your belly button into your spine while pressing your yoga mat away from you.  Holding your core, begin to use your obliques to pull the knee into the tricep.  Hold and release back to high plank.  Repeat on other side.  Repeat this set of each knee to same tricep for 12 reps on each side. 

Overall, we’re in love.  We hope to get some videos up here soon and if you are interested in purchasing a TRX, email us at Lacey@californiayogasport.com and we can hook you up with a client special discount 🙂

Thank you Doug from TRX Training Center for everything today!

Traveling and working out has never looked this good.
