Frequency:

This program could be done 2-3 times per week, with at least one full day of rest between workouts.



Intensity:

The TRX Suspension Training system ® uses bodyweight and manipulates gravity using the leverage of various positions to improve muscular strength and endurance. For optimal development of strength and definition the repetition range should be between 6-12 with the muscles fatiguing by the 12th repetition. For optimal development of muscular endurance and joint range-of-motion, the repetition range should be between 12-20.When starting the program complete each exercise or stretch for 1-3 sets resting between each set before moving to the next exercise. To increase the intensity (i.e., burn more calories) turn the routine into a circuit and complete one exercise right after the other and rest for 2-3 minutes after the completion of one circuit (i.e., all exercises).
