The TRX workout for toned arms

Is toning your arms your new year’s resolution? David Kingsbury Founder of London boutique gym Opus Fitness teaches us how to use the TRX to workout the arms in our new weekly TRX workout series. 

TRX is a form of suspension training that aims to improve strength, flexibility, balance and stability – with the use of your body weight and gravity.

Pretty much any traditional workout move like crunches, planks and pushups can be used and your results will be more challenging and effective with TRX.

David from OPUS gym shows us how you can include TRX into your workout for toned arms.
