Do you every struggle to fit in body magic? I’m moving house next weekend, so with work, moving etc the gym has fallen off this week. I feel pretty rubbish for it and to be honest it’s probably just an excuse, but other things have to take priority sometimes.
However what I try and do when I can’t get to the gym is use my trx. I’ve only recently discovered these, it seems to be the latest craze amongst female celebs. If you’ve seen the pictures of Danielle Lloyd looking amazing, you’ll know what I mean. A lot of mothers use them after having babies as they are fantastic at helping you to re build your core muscles.
Me being me, I had to test it out! I showed my bf the pics and he said he’d got some trx straps!!! Amazing! Now the first time I tried it the door wasn’t secure and I literally fell flat on my face ha ha, very embarrassing. Luckily I didn’t smash any teeth when I crashed to the floor ha ha. No one saw though so it’s fine!! My bedroom door was stronger so I had a go in there. I just googled trx work outs and found some fab ones on you tube. You just fix them to the door shut the door and then do different exercises. As it uses your entire body weight you can get really good results really quickly.
So what is a trx?!? The TRX was the brainchild of a Navy Seal, born out of necessity for keeping in shape during deployment. The principles are simple: hang it up (you can do this at home using a secure bracket), grab the stirrups and work your body against gravity to build muscle and burn fat. The instability caused by the suspension develops serious strength that’s very hard to replicate with regular weights.
You can buy them online, it’s more of an American thing but it’s quickly getting more and more popular over here, I’d highly recommend them as long as you can be motivated to exercise at home. It’s fab for a busy mom or for someone that maybe can’t afford a monthly gym fee. They aren’t cheap, but they are fab and will last forever.
I’ve shared some pics so you can see what I mean. Happy Fopping xxx
