TRX torture for legs

Since I didn’t have an excuse for just doing triceps and biceps, on Saturday I headed for the gym head filled with thoughts about deadlift and squats and that sort of things. But well, both squat racks were taken (come on people, sun was shining and it was HOT outside, go there so I can deadlift and not be outside), I had to figure something else out. I decided to do some TRX. For those of you who don’t know what TRX is, here’s a short explanation.

TRX is a workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.” –source

TRX is quite fun, and you can do circuit training or just focus on certain muscle groups, what ever you want. This is what I did:

  • Pistol squats
  • Balance lunges
  • Push-ups (as in the pic)
  • Row
  • Bicep curls
  • Tricep extension
  • Planks
  • And some other abs too, without the TRX suspension system

My legs are really really sore, the one legged squats were tough! As you can see from my expression.

On Sunday I finally went for a jog. I’m not gonna call it a run, since I walked half of it, and the jog wasn’t that long. But my pollen-filled lungs didn’t fail, so I can run again. And guess who was playing music for me during my run? Bon Jovi!

He was behind the appartment block. But he was there 🙂

It was a great and warm day, and I really hope my shiny white legs got some sun. Despite the sun block. Lots of it.
