TRX - Ceiling or Wall mount, does it matter?
2

Knowitall2112 · 18/01/2021 05:59

Hello,

Would it be possible for a TRX user to detail the exercises which are only possible with a TRX mounted to the ceiling (as opposed to the wall).

Ceiling mounted straps seem to be the preferred option, however, to a beginner, it is not immediately clear why. Specific exercise examples would be very much appreciated. Thank you! 😀

Press ups, and some pull ups (i.e. body parallel to floor) are impossible if the TRX is wall mounted - you need space for your head. Other exercises are just easier/different e.g. Bulgarian split squats - foot against the wall gives you a bit of stability so away from wall is harder work; ab fall outs, better not to feel you're going to headbutt the wall (just fall on floor)...

Thanks @LordEmsworth, this list is very much appreciated. Now I just have to hope that we've an appropriate ceiling joist that's up to the job...
