TRX Suspension for Runners

Tuesday, 8 September 2009  |  Gear + Gadgets

Remember I told you about my new toy, the TRX Suspension Trainer? It’s been giving me such a great strength training workout the past weeks that I’ve skipped the gym hoping that my personal trainer thinks I’m still in Oregon.  (Wait until he reads this)  

A couple of days ago, a friend sent me this great link on using TRX to develop flexibility for runners.  Click here.  A-m-a-z-i-n-g.  It couldn’t have come at a more perfect time as my Polar RS800 is now giving me info on stride length and cadence (yes, I know that I’m below the ideal 90 rpm based on my Hood to Coast data).  At least now I know how to use all this newfound info to improve my performance!  Now, if only I could find more time to train…
