TRX Rip Trainer-Killer Applications to MMA Training

TRX suspension trainers are becoming more popular every day, and with good reason. They are serious equipment that challenges just about every type of athlete or fitness enthusiast. But what the heck is the TRX Rip Trainer?

The Rip Trainer is basically a take on resistance cable training, with some innovative, uh, twists. It consists of a stiff grip bar that attaches at either or both ends to variable resistance (light, medium or heavy) resistance cords. Made with the same intense black and yellow colors of the trx suspension trainer, TRX says that the Rip Trainer will help develop "rotational power, strength and core stability."

But wait, isn't that what the suspension trainer does? Yes, but the Rip cords add an element of dynamic motion to the drill. In other words, you can really develop explosiveness, or power, with the Rip Trainer.

Designed with the same 'anchor it anywhere' concept, the TRX Rip Trainer is priced the same as the TRX Pro Pack, and comes with a door anchor, carrying bag, instructional DVD and color guide to slap on your wall. This is all beautiful, but the video below is an excellent demonstration of how this piece of equipment is applied:

  1. I would love to have one of the TRX Suspension trainers. We live 30+ minutes to any town/gym/babysitters etc. It is not very realistic for me to get away for 2+ hours each day to get some exercise in.

  2. Great video mate. I just ordered a Rip Trainer to use to help get in fighting shape for MMA.
