The Best Full-Body TRX Workout For Men Who Want To Avoid A “Dad Bod”

best trx full body workout for men avoid dad bod First off, we're sorry for using the term "Dad Bod." It's as offensive as "manscaping" but with something called SEO it pays for us to use it. Anyway, "The Dad Bod," for those who are lucky enough to have forgotten, was the internet craze that basically stated middle-aged guys are prone to sport flabby man-boobs and a hairy gut soon after their kids are born. You know, because kids take up all of your time and guys tend to eat garbage, blah blah blah. Also: Own A TRX Home Suspension Trainer ($200) Whether that's true or not, who cares. The point is that no guy wants to own a boy like that. It's not healthy and, unless you have money dangling from your zipper, it's not appealing to women. So for guys who simply want to look and feel better without joining a gym, you need to A) eat right (read: lay off of the Funyons and donuts); and B) exercise consistently. Without a gym, bodyweight, circuits, and suspension training are all viable ways to burn calories, enhance body strength, and maintain a slender (even chiseled) physique. Use this TRX workout courtesy of former Navy SEAL and founder of TRX, Randy Hetrick. And if you don't own a TRX, use Hetrick's modified at-home bodyweight workout, which you can view here.   best trx workout for men TRX Chest Press  Rep time: 45 sec.
