Strap Yourself In

What does it take to be the Head of Human Performance at TRX [@TRXTraining]? Know a little something about humans and know a hell of a lot about performance. Chris Frankel [@C.Frankel] of the massively successful TRX walks us through his role and the training philosophy of the brand. In a market like strength and conditioning where “anything works”, what sets this product and complimentary programming above the others?

This phrase has been echoed in the theme of the Power Athlete Methodology for ages, but never articulated quite as well. Leave it to TRX Head of Human Performance, Chris Frankel, to drop this nugget of wisdom on our listeners. Frankel goes on to explain that being really really ridiculously fit can set you up for catastrophic injury if your movement is dogshit. Don’t put a Ferrari in a a Volkswagen chassis, people. Learn how TRX has taught the military, pro athletes, and normal jabronies like you and me how to move better through activating the proper musculature. Also, premium parenting advice from John Welbourn advising you when lying to your kids is in their best interest to protect them. Young Flat-Earthers?


I realize that this episode is dropping just mere hours before the TRX Trainer Summit in Austin, TX, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sign up, drop in, or beg at the door like an exercise peasant. For more information on TRX or the summit head to www.TRXTraining.com or type TRX into the old instagram and you will see that roughly 17 different TRX accounts exist to satisfy all of your strap related inquiries.
