A little anecdote from my trip to Barcelona....

I trained on the beach there. They had a sort of outside gym set up on the beach, not with weights and benches, but more like a playing ground.

I put up the TRX to one of the poles of the chin-up-bar, and worked out there. Priceless. Feeling the fresh air, the sun, the smell of the sea...
That is really another plus, compared to normal lifting equipment. Not only that it is light and easy to transport, but you can also set it up nearly everywhere.

It was one of the best workouts i had in the 11 weeks so far.

Week 11 + 12
Week 1/2


Strength Session B
Tuesday


This one went amazingly well, but it's fucking hard as well.

Only 2 minutes for the 20 reps Suspended Incline Press and the 40reps Elevated Back Row! Other Exercises are in 3 sets, the three deltoid exercises are a superset of 10reps each.
High BAck extension is 3 sets of 15 reps now, brutal!

I lost it a bit on the core exercises, instead of 3 sets 10 reps each side of the Suspended Oblique Pike with Body Saw i only did the Oblique pike without the saw movement.

That sounds pretty sweet.  I'm definitely going to give this a go on the deck at the fitness studio when the weather gets nicer.

Week 11 + 12
Week 2/2

You may have noticed, i was lagging in my consistency to put up reports lately...

The simple reason is: Weeks 11 + 12 are too hard for me.  Cry
I had to change every single session in certain ways to keep up with the program and got a little frustrated. Either i was making longer breaks, cutting down reps or sets or doing easier exercises from the weeks before.

Another thing that frustrated me a bit was that i changed the angle on some exercises and managed to hit other muscles with great intensity, for example on the "Y Deltoid Raise", making the Y of the arms a bit more open hits the traps enormously!!  Shocked Shocked

I am really a bit happy about the fact that weeks 11 + 12 were too heavy because that means i can still improve. Another thing is that i tried some little changes that were provided from the TRX homepage, like the "TRX Scorpion Kick" and i didn't even manage to do one clean rep on that one!

I will make a break next week and then return to the gym, but i already pln to do another 12 weeks in about a month or 6 weeks. The TRX is great, and i had some of the most intense workout of my life on it.

Some thoughts about the last 12 weeks:

The training was superb. Very intense, my abs were sore 12 weeks long, with only a few breaks.

I really miss the TRX already, i'll be back in the gym this week or next week, but i'll keep the TRX for abs!

Then i plan on doing the next 12 week program from June. The TRX is just too good, i feel much fitter overall.

Back in the Gym!


Today i did a quick fix of chest and back, i have gotten stronger on all exercises. I could either put on 10-15kg more weight or reps out 3-5 more reps with the former max!

Another thing i noticed immediatly is that my shoulder problems are gone. Before i had some problems with the left shoulder on flies and chest press, that is gone completely.  Shocked

Deadlift weight has gone up considerably, and it feels a lot safer, or easier. I think that's because of the better core muscles and the better small muscle coordination the TRX gives you.
Lat pull down / pull ups have improved a lot too.


I did a bit of ab work as well, but got pretty bored with hanging leg raises and ball crunches as there seemed to be no end to it...  Grin Grin
I'll have to try some weighted ab exercises next time.

Core work makes a difference, difinitly!

I can't wait to try squats, but i am moving this week and don't have time to go to the gym.  Angry

DK - Thanks for your review.  Your detailed analysis spurred me to buy one.  It has been great so far, but I'm just starting week 2.  I'm not doing the cardio program as exactly detailed by them, because I also swim and want to work that into the program.

Cool, great that you liked it.

I'm already planning my second go, starting from the end of July!

The real beauty of this system is that you don't have to use it in a gym.  I have mine set up with a simple $3 hitching ring I bought at Home Depot, which I fastened to the wall of my garage with four tapcons.  (That was a much cheaper solution than their $35 wall anchor, and just as effective.)  I did not like the door anchor -- at 240, I felt like my interior doors were going to fall apart.

Nice hint there! Thanks.
