Ok pilots, it’s that time of year again for many of us. You know what I mean, and I’m not talking about Pilot License extension. I’m talking about summer; that sweaty, sticky, sexy time of year where if you got it, you flaunt it, and if you don’t, well, some still do, but probably shouldn’t. It’s embarrassing.
Tired of being in that last group? Would you rather be in that first group that has great self-esteem, self-image, self-enjoyment on a regular basis?
Then you’re going to need to work for it. I dare you.
That’s right, it’s a personal challenge from me to you, 21 days of exercise in a row, to test the limits of your body, the discipline of your mind, and the dedication of your heart.
I guarantee that if you live through it, you’ll thank me.
Only one catch for this: you need a TRX Suspension Trainer (P2 model). Shop around online. They aren’t expensive. I’ve found them from $90 – $250, depending on your locale. Still, that’s only 2 – 3 months at your local gym, and you get to keep this equipment and can use it anywhere, but enough uncommissioned sell for TRX, let’s get our workout on!
|1A||TRX Lunge (w/ Touch and Hop)||16||30 secs||3|
|1B||TRX Inverted Row||16||30 secs||3|
|2A||TRX Balance Lunge to TRX Single Leg Squat||16||30 secs||3|
|2B||TRX Atomic Push-up||16||30 secs||3|
|3A||TRX Y Deltoid Fly||8||30 secs||2|
|3B||TRX Biceps Curl||8||30 secs||2|
|3C||TRX Triceps Extension||8||30 secs||2|
|3D||TRX Body Saw||8||30 secs||2|
Do each number group as a circuit, so 1A, followed by 1B, then onto 2A, 2B, etc. It’s straightforward stuff. The only comment I’m going to make is that the guy doing the body saw in the video is lame. One of the core principles of TRX training is the pendulum. For that exercise, the further away you are from the anchor point, the more challenging the exercise. What he’s doing is adding zero difficulty to the exercise, but it’s the best example I could find quickly.
|1A||TRX Hip Extension||8||30 secs||3|
|1B||TRX Single Arm Row||8||30 secs||3|
|2A||TRX Single Leg Squat||8||30 secs||3|
|2B||TRX Push-up||8||30 secs||3|
|3A||TRX Lunge||8||30 secs||2|
|3B||TRX Roll Out||8||30 secs||2|
|4A||TRX Jump Squat||30 secs||30 secs||2|
|4B||TRX Mountain Climber||30 secs||30 secs||2|
Do each number group as a circuit, so 1A, followed by 1B, then onto 2A, 2B, etc. It’s straightforward stuff.
So that’s your challenge, and before you start whining about how difficult it is, this would be the beginner level for my TRX classes, so suck it up and get it done.
In the comments section, commit to it. Then each day, come back and reply to your own comment. I want to see how everyone does, and sadly can’t be there with you.
As always, ask me any questions you want about this. I’m happy to help.
Now go show summer who’s boss!
