    Its good training if you are in an austere environment with limited options, but someone like you would benefit more from a power rack and a barbell.

    I decided to buy one for home. benefits:
    1. Best core training ever
    2. My brother and father will use this
    3. When my gym is close on holidays I can still workout
    4. When my gym membership will expire i'll work the TRX untill I renew it.

    Worth buying isn't it?

    Spartan woke up on the wrong side of the bed I think...

    Ya if you got the money go get a TRX. They are really good for core exercises, however, planking for a minute on them isn't going to doing much for you. You'll need to focus on movements that allow you to move your limbs while maintaining stability through your torso (I think they give you a DVD with a bunch of exercises).

    Stay away from any "strength" movement on them though.

    i just started looking at TRX for my athletes since weight room access is basically non existent, the only thing it would be used for though is inverted rows though because back work would otherwise be impossible to do without barbells, dumbells, and pull up bars. I would however never say buy a TRX system for individual use...but if you really want one buy the golds gym knockoffs for 1/10th of the price (thats what i did)
    oh and If you have never felt your core on squats you are either doing them wrong or still are using baby weight

    I'm guessing high schoolers since they have restricted and limited access to their school's weight room.

    Lets not mistake strength in the core muscle with core stability. Two very different things. You can do sit-ups and back extensions all day and have very strong core muscles but that doesn't make an athlete anymore stable while running/jumping/throwing.

    For example, google and youtube will give more ideas if you want. It's really cheap to make IMO.

    yup high school baseball doesnt get the treatment football gets so we have to improvise.
    but TRX look alikes are possible to make for much less than even 50% off, google homemade TRX and you will be flooded with results
