Plank

Why? Builds strength and stability in the shoulder joint and core stomach muscles.

How? On all fours with feet in the cradles, shift your weight on to your hands, lift your knees and straighten your legs so that your feet are suspended and your body straight from shoulders to heels. Keep the shoulders down and back. Build up from three sets of 10 seconds to three sets of 60 seconds.

It's great to see an article on the TRX.

Unfortunately this article doesn't do it justice - it is far more than a piece of equipment for recovery after injury! I use it regularly to train with and I am stronger and fitter than I have ever been. I also use it with clients who vary in abilities from complete beginner (I mean complete beginner as in not exercised for many years) to advanced users, the possibilities are so vast!

Just check out some of the video clips on youtube to see for yourself what an amazing workout you can have with a TRX - Oh and one of the things I love most about it is that you can workout outdoors!!!
