Why are parts of my body are shaking when I perform the exercises? This is common when first starting out.
Using a TRX to exercise requires stability in all areas of your body especially your core, shoulder girdle and hips.
The shaking primarily comes from your lack of strength in stability around those areas. Your stabilisation muscles will strengthen over time and thus you will develop stability over time.
When I first started training with a TRX many years back I was only ‘gym strong’ and not what I would term ‘functional fitness’ strong.
For example, I could deadlift close to 200kg at 76kg body weight but I couldn’t hold my self steady without shaking when performing a TRX chest press or TRX abs superman.
I had shoulder girdle aches and rotator pains for years in the gym…
After 3 months of leaving the gym behind and training with a TRX I had no shoulder pain, increased flexibility and a solid foundation of strength in the above 3 mentioned areas.
I was able to hold my body weight in many positions and ways with great form and stability.
Ultimately it’s a great thing to initially experience the shakes as it means you are challenging your body in ways it is not used to and thus you will have greater results, faster.
