A lot of people that you hear talking in gyms, as well as the mainstream media, tend to think that the only way to train your abs is to perform endless amounts of crunches and sit ups in the form of torso flexion. In reality, this can actually lead to over use injuries and contribute to poor posture and muscle imbalances. I absolutely love using the TRX for isolating and targeting the abs/core/torso muscles for balance and effectiveness. This video demonstrates how you can maximize results, and recruit different muscle fibres, through training your core and ab muscles using the TRX. This is accomplished in a variety of different positions such as standing, leaning on your side, facing downwards, loading the anterior, posterior and lateral chains and utilizing all the planes of motion such as frontal, sagittal, and transverse. Depending on your goals and fitness levels, I would recommend a broad range of 8-20 reps per exercise.
