Free Fitness Friday: TRX Full Body Workout

Fitness, WorkoutkellypuryearComment

It's Friday and I am more excited than usual as today marks my first full month of the Dietetic Internship and my last day at my first Clinical rotation. While I am sad to leave the Dialysis Clinic that I have been interning at for the past month, I am looking forward to my next rotation at a Long-Term Care facility.

I am also looking forward to the end of the work day so I can get my self to the gym and try out my TRX Full Body Workout! For this Free Fitness Friday workout, you will need a TRX strap set (or a similar piece of equipment) and may want a yoga mat for some of the exercises. This workout can be performed as its own AMRAP-style workout or added to the end of another full body workout to exhaust the muscle fibers and maximize the training results! Either way, I know you will burn some serious calories and may actually have fun while doing it!
