Someone gave us a TRX "system" (I don't know what's system about it, it's just one thing) for our little gym. I had seen a reference somewhere, I think here on the forum, to someone using them for "fall-outs", which I took to be analogous to a roll-out. The DVD that came with the thing has a lot of exercises, and offers one the opportunity to pay money to be shown some more (thank you very much), which offer I have, by stint of main strength and will, resisted so far.
Well, it didn't seem worthless. It's well-designed and well-made, with nice spring-loaded clamps to quickly adjust the length. So I took it to the gym and hung it up where the heavy bag should and would be, had it not sprung a leak and resisted our efforts to repair it. So I do the "fall-outs" which seem to be good, and are kind of fun.
Does anyone use a TRX? What do you use it for? Does anyone do "fall-outs"? If so, what do you do in terms of the height of the handles from the floor, your stance, etc? How do you program it? I stand about 18-20 inches away from it with the handles at about knee-height, then grab the handles and lean forward until I'm in a flying super-man position (thought Sam tells me my body is not straight, but slightly flexed at the waist) and try to get my arms out as straight as I can, although they are not fully-extended, and then press down, and flex my hips until I'm standing up again.
I did them for 5 sets of 10 inter-setted with a couple of other assistance exercises.
