This TRX back workout will challenge your strength

Looking for a new back workout? David Kingsbury Founder of London boutique gym Opus Fitness teaches us how to use the TRX to workout the back 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.

In Healthista’s latest video workout series, David Kingsbury from OPUS gym shows us how you can include TRX in your workout for a toned back.
