TRX/Suspesnion Trainer Strength Building 4-day split
Not entirely sure how many of you guys will actually utilize this but from experience these are some of the most effective set ups for putting on mass and strength with a suspension trainer, such as a TRX. If you have any questions or concerns about an exercise etc please let me know.
Most of these are as compound you can get with the TRX, or in other words the most effective exercises to do with a suspension trainer to build strength. From experience this works great.... ONLY issue is that its hard to progress if you want to use it as a regular routine as it is very effective if you can keep adding resistance(weight) to your body.
All of these should be on their max progression for best results with the most weight you can add to your body, get creative.

Repeat this for 3 weeks then take a one week rest. This trains about every muscle in your body and if you want to workout out your forearms it would be a good idea to get a set of talon trainers as well for grip strength. If you wish to continuously use this program, after it becomes easy keep adding weight to your body, i.e. a weighted vest or backpack, plates etc and get creative.
