TRX is a form of suspension training that develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability by leveraging gravity to complete the exercises. Learn how to perform a TRX squat with the team at Fitness Institute!

To begin, set up the TRX and adjust to the appropriate length. Feet should be shoulder width apart and underneath the body with toes pointing forwards or slightly outwards (Figure 1).

Take hold of the handles with bent arms and begin to squat. The TRX will allow you to sit back into a deep squat (Figure 2).

Slowly extend the knees to return to the start position.

Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
