Intermediate: TRX Arm Sculptor Program
Gain lean, shaped and strong arms without a gym, anywhere.
I created this program for those wanting to transform their arms anywhere, with a TRX being the tool to do so. It incorporates a variety of exercises based around the ‘strength curve’ principle, meaning it combines exercises that target all areas of the arms resulting in a well-rounded sculpted shape. Combined with progressive overload principles so you improve in physique and in functional fitness strength.
This product is a 52 page downloadable PDF document. Once purchased, a download link will be emailed to you and the product will be available in ‘my account’.
The program is designed so each workout session is approximately 15 - 25 minutes long depending on how comfortable and experienced you are with a TRX and fitness training in general. I didn't want to create a plan that required you spend hours training just your arms, multiple times a week. The results based scientific literature has shown that is not necessarily an effective or needed way to exercise your arms to gain results (I expand on this further, with regards to volume and intensity in section 11. The Program Explained).
I wanted to create a program that could be executed on a morning before work, on a lunch break, when at the beach or by a pool. Not one that was dreaded or one that would take large amounts of time to incorporate. It can be added onto the end of a current workout plan to increase volume or used solely for its purpose to transform your arms physique and strength anytime-anywhere. The program delivers a tailored structure to achieve maximum effectiveness utilising 2 Blocks of 4 weeks.

Who this Program is for
Fundamentally if you are seeking a workout program that specifically targets arms allowing you to perform it anywhere (home, travel and in nature) with a TRX then this plan is for you. You will benefit from this program if:
- You are comfortable around a TRX and have 1 – 2 years general fitness application in other forms
- You are a fitness enthusiast with a few years relatively serious ‘gym training’ under your belt, but have not used a TRX before. Then you may find this beneficial and also challenging at times as the movement mechanics will be different to what your body is used to. So in essence, this is a way to differentiate your training.
- You are coming out of recovery from an injury then this program could be beneficial to begin with, either as a whole or per Block before going back into serious weight or power lifting training.
- If you are looking to learn specific TRX exercises for arms
- If you are looking for an intense TRX arms plan (Block 2) or a plan to focus on mastering TRX movements and correct muscular contractions for the arms (Block 1)
Who this Program is not for
Whilst I feel everyone can benefit from TRX training regardless of experience, I would not want to hinder or offer something to someone that has specific goals and would benefit more, with potentially better results, by adopting a different type of training. This program may not be for you if:
- You are a serious body builder / power lifter
- You are seeking a high aerobic or aerobic cardio program.
- You are seeking a very high volume program
- You are looking to add huge hypertrophy size (gains) to your abs
Do not purchase this program if:
- You are under 16 years old
- You are dealing with any hip or lower-back injury
- You are pregnant or looking to become pregnant
- You don’t have software to open a PDF
- You aren’t serious about making progress

Can I build my arm muscles with this program?
Yes, if you follow the program executing the exercises with correct form focusing on contracting the primary muscle and you are eating in a caloric surplus you will build muscle. However, there are a number of other factors at play here which will affect this such as your nutrition, genetic potential and general health.
In my Beginner Program – TRX Total Body Transformation I cover recommendations for nutrition and how to calculate for your goals with regards to eating for size (muscle hypertrophy) or eating for a lean physique.
Where can this program be performed?
All this program requires is a TRX with a door or hook to hang it from and approx 2m2 space of floor room with twice your height head room.
I have used this program across several countries performing the exercises in hotels, hostels, beaches, jungles, roof-tops, parks, at home, in a garden, on a balcony and on a building site.
I believe the question is not where can it be performed? But where do you want to perform it? The world is your oyster and this program your Fitness Freedom.
Do I need to do a warm up / cool-down before and after each workout?
Yes, this is very important for safety and injury prevention but also to allow you to gain the maximum results from the program by preparing your body. It is essential to warm up the entire body before beginning any TRX exercise. You can find a variety on my YouTube channel that may suit your needs
I'm struggling with X exercise what should I do?
First up, refer to the TRX video exercise glossary within this program to double check you have the technique correct. Secondly, reach out to the Facebook TRX Fitness Freedom Support Group so I / people can recommend an alternative substitute exercise or I will help correct your technique to you are able to perform the movement.
How do I know if I am progressing?
Progression in fitness with regards to all aspects takes time. If you can master patience within this industry you will go far and achieve whatever fitness goal you want to. Taking physique progress photos every 3-4 weeks and comparing them side-by-side is a good way to detect visual differences that you simply wouldn’t notice in the mirror. But ultimately, because of the relationship between strength gain and muscle / body transformation gain, the main metric I want you to use for tracking your progress is strength. If you are feeling stronger and finding the exercises more comfortable and managing to follow the increasing overload progression each week then YOU ARE progressing overall.
Keep a log book of how exercises feel or print this program out and scribble at the side of the plan what you found difficult or easy each day to reflect back on. Taking body measurements a few times a year can also be helpful (arms, thighs, waist, neck). Weighing yourself each day and then dividing the total by 7 to get your weekly average is a good way to monitor your weight if losing or gaining is your goal. Overall focusing on steady strength progression will be your best proxy for determining transformational progress.
I'm finding the exercises too hard, I can't hit the reps specified. What should I do?
You can decrease the effort and intensity of the exercise by changing your body and feet position in relation to the TRX. I would first encourage you to play with this to create more of a comfortable angle and thus placing less intensity on your muscles and less overall effort. Refer to the demonstration videos in the glossary section for examples of this for each exercise. If you are still finding the effort too much after experimenting with feet and body position – perform the exercise to as many reps as you can and record the number within the plan boxes (reps 1,2,3,4) to refer back to each week to try and advance.
This program is not intended to be an all inclusive TRX training course. I developed this program as a tool and structure for people to achieve the goal of transforming their arms whilst developing functional strength anywhere.
That being said there is still a lot (52 pages worth to be exact) of key anatomy points when performing movements, a glossary of video demonstration links and a big section covering correct form, good technique principles and weekly progression. Which I believe many people may find beneficial.
