Low-impact doesn’t have to mean no cardio. And that’s especially true when it comes to TRX Suspension Training, the all-in-one, body weight training system that has become one of the hottest workouts out there.
Although many people think of TRX as a muscle-building workout, it’s actually great for improving cardiovascular endurance as well. In fact, a recent study from the Western State Colorado University showed that eight weeks of TRX training greatly improved subjects’ resting systolic blood pressure and resting diastolic blood pressure!
