So decided to try lose some of the lard and got a personal trainer back in August. Last couple of months he's been bringing along his trx (basically an extendable/shortenable set of straps with handles that you hang from a point) to the gym.
You can work almost any muscle group (all weight resistance based by how your stance is), now I kinda like it as it packs up to about the size of a grapefruit and you can hang it from anything e.g. a tree branch so get a workout almost anywhere. The negatives I see are you can't exactly repeat the weight, you might know you're going up/improving, isolating the muscle groups you're aiming for needs to be done with quite precise movements.
Anyway, just curious if anyone else has used this/has any thoughts?
