What is total body resistance training?

Total body resistance training, or TRX, was developed for people who can train anytime anywhere. TRX suspension training engages muscles that you didn’t even know you had! It can be done to strengthen all the muscles of your body and, most importantly, your core because you will be required to use your bodyweight to complete the movements. You can use TRX to do chest press, bicep curls, leg raises, rows and much more while only using your own power.

Endorphins and Exercise

That feel-good feeling associated with exercise can be directly correlated to chemicals in the brain that stimulate the body to feel this way. These neurochemicals are known as endorphins and are produced in the brain as a reaction to stress and pain. They minimise the negative impact both of these can have on your wellbeing – mind and body – and can also lead to feelings of euphoria in some cases. One of these cases is during exercise.
