Suspension Training

First off, I apologize if this doesn't belong in the "strength and power training" section (Don't know where else to put it).


I came across this product called TRX.

I've read a few positive reviews for this thing and watched some videos but I wanted to know if anyone here uses it or what people here think of it. Apparently Bas Rutten incorporates this into his training.

Join a gym or make a weight room in your house. I would recommend the gym more, especially one where you know other fighters train. You get to meet people, share expierences(if you are into talking while working, i am not.), you learn from others (beit their misstakes or qualities in techinque, work ethic, etc.), also it sets up a the instinct of your body and mind knowing its tie to work hard when you are in the gym or even your own workout room. Don't go for gimics and flash just do whats been proven to work and add your own flare to keep yourself motivated and inspired to keep improving. Save your money on these things, "go anywhere" workout products just aren't effective, maybe you see results and improve but I feel in the long run they will fail you or improve you less than hard work in the gym.

Not that I blame anyone here but the reply was a bit late. I went ahead and purchased it about a two weeks ago. Thanks for the advice though. I do belong to a gym and have been lifting weights for a couple of years now. I just feel like I've reached a certain peak in my gains so I wanted to try something different for a little while. I realize that even the most decorated MMA fighters are not immune to promoting gimmics (i.e. Xience) but I was rather impressed at the list of fighters who used the TRX (St.Pierre, Huerta, Bas, and so on) and it's not like they are cashing in on it. The day after the first work out I felt the soreness, even around my core though I didn't specifically target this area during the work out. Anyway, I like it so far. If the novelty wears off, I'll stick with the weights.
