This is an all out, total body TRX, Rip Trainer fusion power interval workout, for boosting metabolism and building explosive strength, get after it!
Power training is the key to maintaining muscle mass and boosting anaerobic metabolism. It can also be extraordinarily effective for releasing growth hormone to build cartilage, sturdy bones and strong muscle. Effective power training incorporates a combination of strength and speed and involves fast, explosive muscular contractions for three to six repetitions (10 reps at most for some exercises) or work periods of 10 to 15 seconds in length. Classic examples include plyometric bodyweight exercises like squat jumps, mountain climbers, burpees and plyo push-ups or ballistic equipment-based exercises like cleans, snatches, push presses and swings.
High intensity interval training (HIIT) techniques like tabata intervals can be used to supercharge your TRX Suspension Training or Rip Training workouts. The basic HIIT technique is to alternate periods of extremely high intensity exercise with short rest periods for a specified number of sets.
This simple formula can be sliced and diced literally hundreds of different ways to target your exact goals, whether they’re enhancing athletic performance or your appearance. You manipulate the work and rest intervals to create the optimal training result.
If you’re new to HIIT or just want a simple approach to experiment with, try using a 2:1 work-to-rest ratio applied to four different TRX Suspension Training movements.
