Are TRX Squats Effective? – 3 Ways to Squat (Suspension Training at Home)

Published on: January 06, 2022

If like me (chicken legs), you’re looking to tone, build or shape the legs? These are the techniques for you.

Are TRX Squats Effective? – 3 Ways to Squat (Suspension Training at Home). We’re getting a little advanced here. But, master them and the transformational possibilities are HUGE.

Key technique points below video.

00:25 TRX Narrow Quad Squats

The outer quad muscle for leg shape and width

  • Feet close together. Constantly push the feet outwards against the floor all the time. Up and down. To place all the load on the outer quad.
  • Don’t straighten out at the top. This allows the inner and central quad muscles to be involved, taking the load away from the outer quad.

02:10 TRX Quad Squats

Inner and central quad muscles for thickness and definition

  • Feet close together and lean forward slightly over the quads.
  • Constantly push the feet outwards against the floor all the time. Up and down. However, this time straighten out and the top and SQUEEZE super hard for 2 sec.

03:55 TRX Hamstring Squats

Hamstrings and glutes for stability and shape

  • Wide stance. Toes slightly pointed outwards.
  • DON’T JUST SIT DOWN, pull the body down by squeezing the hamstrings. Imagine trying to burst a big ball between the ankles and glutes….
  • Pause at the bottom. Contract the hams and glutes to stand up. Don’t lockout at the top, keep a bend in the knees and squeeze the glutes and hamstrings super hard for 2 sec.

06:05 Ineffective squats that most people do


  • 4 sec negative
  • 1 sec pause at the bottom
  • 1 sec contract
  • 2 sec top squeeze (except TRX Close Stance Squats = 0 sec)

TRX Close Stance Squats are my fav. Which do you favour?

My Money-Back Guarantee To You

My 'Fitness Freedom Money-Back Guarantee' & 'Program Swap Guarantee' To You

If the reviews and success stories didn’t already convince you, then hear me out. I am completely confident that the Fitness Freedom Programs will change how you workout forever.

In fact, I’m so confident, that if it doesn’t help improve your understanding of mindful muscle-centric TRX (or band) technique, change your body, and ultimately help you achieve your fitness goal, the Program is all yours FREE forever.


So, you’re free to join the whole Program, and try it out. Watch the teaching videos, read the training guides, join the private Facebook Group Community, drop me a message anytime and connect with your body like never before using the Programs…

If you follow the entire Program exactly as prescribed, and do not gain anything in the next 8 – 10 weeks than you ever had previously, you have the right to a prompt and full refund, no questions asked. Could any offer be fairer than that?

Or if you think you've chosen the wrong Program (too easy/hard, prefer a different split, wrong goal etc) you can swap to another within the first few days, free of charge!

I didn’t create the Fitness Freedom Programs as just another ‘workout plan’...

I created them because I love helping people ‘see the light’ by teaching them how to gain a Life of fitness freedom, and not lack results like I did for years inside a gym, confined and mindlessly ‘just moving’.

Gain your Fitness freedom! Adam, TRX Traveller
