Intro: Home Made TRX: bodyweight suspended training system
I recently happened to hear about the TRX Training system by Fitness Anywhere (http://www.trxtraining.com/ )and got curious about it.It took about 20 minutes to go crazy about it and wanting one, but the idea of spending between
200 and 250 U$D
was not so appealing.But TRX, like all great ideas (like Chess rules or Unix design...) has the special feature of being an extremely simple concept with a simple design that give a lot offreedom an different possibilities of use.Being simple makes it easy to replicate.This is how I made my "almost professional looking" TRX system with
during three episodes of "the walking dead" ;-)
TRX is a commercial product so all credits for the concept are due to Fitness Anywhere. This is a just replica, or knockoff if you prefer, of their product but cannot standthe comparison to the original one.
Using your homemade TRX might result in damaging the equipment, you or your house, specially if you make it out of poor materials or don't do it properly. Don't blameme if you break something.
As for every fitness equipment consult your physical first and see if it fits for your general body conditions.With all that said... let's dive in.
