Strength Training

Hello in this post I would like to let you know some of the strength training Ive been doing lately. Usually 2-3 times per week and about 30 minutes long after a run that way I already have my muscle warmed up.  Back in February I bought a TRX for my girlfriend and after watching her doing some of the exercises I decided to give it a try. The first couple of times it was very hard and the following day I would feel very sore witch meant that it actually works. Because its simple to carry and to work with, its very convenient to have it and all you need is a door or some thing where you can hang it from. Since I live right in front of a soccer field I usually hang it from the goalie post. Here are some photos of the exercises I do to work my core. You can youtube for some videos and a detail explanation on how to use it properly or just go to their website. I think is a great tool for triathletes with a tight schedule since all you really need is about 20-30 minutes per session and it will keep you FIT ;)

Hope you give it a try at your local gym or at home and that it works for you.
