Hello all :-) I've just got my own suspension trainer:

...but it comes without any example training programmes. While I can Google some exercises and training programmes, I can easily see myself going a little overboard to start with, so I wondered does anyone else use them? How much did you start with? Any specific exercises you found really good?

Ta :-)

I am not familiar enough to know of a TRX plan but I know that many gyms and PT use them. Could you get a one off plan from them and do that? I went to a TRX class and it was amazing, sadly it was too expensive to keep up but yeah, you feel it enough doing a normal session so you don't want to overdo it.

Thanks Jambomo. Actually my gym has them too but no classes, just the trainers use them. I wanted a set for home for quick workouts and for err...not falling on my face in public ๐Ÿ˜œ Maybe the trainers won't notice when I casually stalk them during their sessions...

I did a bit yesterday, triceps sore today but nothing else which is surprising, thought I might split something during plank to a pathetically little knee tucks!

I couldn't resist one of these in the sales - mine came with a link to membership of TRX and some instructions/videos to follow.
I haven't had a go yet...

Is anyone still using this and if so how are you getting on?

Strangely coincidental I got mine out from the dark recesses of the kit cupboard today as the gym is currently shut.

I only used it a few times years ago so will probably have a play with it later in the week.

I've had one for a while but haven't used it of late.
It came with a little booklet but YouTube is, so I'm told, the place to look for example sessions
