In fact, TRX is the creator of Rip™ Training Equipment，sometimes the most experienced gym rats wearing the coolest workout gear and lugging around a gallon jug of water (which looks really, really cool) are the worst role models to emulate. That’s why studying proper technique, and even using a personal trainer to help you understand it, is critical to your progress. In the context of fitness and metabolism management, the process of weight lifting isn’t about strength and personal records as much as it is about biochemistry. Your goal shouldn’t be to bench press more than the next person, or even more than you did last week, but rather, to stimulate the muscle in a precise fashion for the purpose of generating a biochemical response. It takes study and knowledge, and frankly you don’t often see it done perfectly in most gyms. So as you commit to reaching your goals, commit to being the one person in the gym that does it the right way, which conveniently is also the most effective.
