Workout Box – TRX Training

As you guys know I’m all about switching up my workouts in the gym as much as possible since it continues to keep my body guessing. Group exercise classes (especially Step and Circuit Training) and swimming seem to be my go-to workouts lately, but today I decided to head to the TRX Suspension Trainer. If you are a long time MCT reader, you may remember me posting about past TRX workouts here and here.

My decision to complete a TRX Suspension Workout today was actually influenced by an email that I received in my inbox last week from a representative at Workout Box. Within the email was a link which led to the ultimate guide of their TRX exercises. After browsing the many exercises, I decided to put together the workout below.

Warm- up: 10 minutes on Stair Master

3 sets of 10-12 reps

Whew, I cannot stress the awesomeness of this type of workout. I’ve only been home from the gym for about two and half hours and I’m already experiencing a bit of soreness. is a leading source of workout plans and videos. They also offer customized workout plans from some of the most respected personal trainers. I’d highly recommend you to check out this website especially if you have trouble brainstorming your own workout plans day-to-day.

Once I made it home, I prepared and cooked dinner right away. This past Friday Brett and I received our new pots and pans. Check them out below.

NewPotsandPansWe actually had to exchange them twice due to dented lids, but Bed, Bath and Beyond was beyond cooperative and we are extremely happy with our purchase. Thanks to some of our wedding guest for the gift cards and monetary gifts which we used to purchase the cookware.
