American Gymnast is excited to announce its new Strength and Fitness concept at http://www.GymnasticsStrength.com, featuring an entire product line for general fitness, weightlifting, gymnastics and bodyweight strength training. From it’s inception, American Gymnast has been an industry leader in promoting gymnastics exercises and products that utilize bodyweight for strength development and emphasize core conditioning.
I started using TRX recently, and the more I started using it, the more I liked it. For some exercises, like butterfly presses, it's not much different than using a set of low rings, except that there is one attachment point overhead instead of two. However, by utilizing the foot cradles you can also get a great workout in your core, glutes, and even your planche position strength.
