The ultimate TRX workout to boost your running
If you've always been intimidated by that bright yellow scary collection of ropes you've seen fit looking people suspended from in the gym, never quite sure what they’re doing, but intrigued to have a go yourself, we are here to welcome you to the TRX. It can improve your running and well and truly shake up your workout regime. As complete newbies to the training device we went along to meet US guru Dan Mcdonogh and Brit TRX expert Elizabeth Banks in their Baker Street studio to learn the ropes and have a go at this bespoke workout for runners. The workout is designed to strengthen your whole body to support running whilst targeting runner-specific areas to boost your bodies strength and stability.
So hit the ropes and aim to do these moves 3 times over a few times a week. Each move should be performed for 8-15 reps, ensuring that you can maintain good form throughout.

That does make the TRX more appealing now as a runner, might print off this page and give them a go.
most exercises on the trx will be good for a runner, you can engage your core on a lot of the exercises,
I have been doing TRX for a couple of months as recommended by my physio - is great for core work, have had no injuries and has improved my 10k times.
I have been thinking of buying a TRX as it is very easy to store and carry almost everywhere. It is just the price that puts me off... I am quite frankly not sure if the kit is worth about £200...
Useful, but doesn't mention how many sets/reps of each should be performed?!
I reckon you could make a set from two old car seat belts, a carabiner and something for the handles/footrests, and strap it to a tree!
Trx exercise are good for running,but beware they are hard going but enjoyable
Same excerises as the balance ball,hits getting a theme. New pricey kit to do thing we can all do without the pricey kit!
ah! you have to but kit of course!
The Rip 60 is pretty much the same - exept much much cheaper - had for months now and use it all the time.
