The TRX workout for your core

Strengthen your core with a TRX core workout from Barbi Viragh at London boutique gym Opus Fitness – scroll down for TRX circuits for legs, back, glutes and arms

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.

Barbi Viragh from OPUS gym shows us how you can include TRX into your workout to strengthen your core.

Watch the YouTube video below or read on to find out.

Core workout routine

Perform each step for forty seconds, and take twenty seconds rest between each step.

1. Standing roll out

2. Crunch and press up

3. Side plank with hip dips

4. Oblique crunches

5. Side plank with hip dips

6. Leg raises

7. Sit ups

Repeat this circuit three times for a twenty-five minute workout. Be sure to rest for sixty seconds between each circuit. You can go 5 rounds instead of 3 if you’re feeling up to a more challenging workout routine.

It’s important that you use slow, controlled movements during this TRX workout.
