    Hi,

    I have recently started a new job so hardly have time to go to the gym anymore so i was looking into buying some TRX ropes asthey seem very good.

    However they are very expensive, anybody know of any copies of them? or any other things i could use to simulate them?

    any help much appreciated! Thanks!!

    What is it you're looking to aim for? It will likely be cheaper and more convinient (and betterer) to grab a few Kettlebells or dumbbells instead. I tried TRX stuff for a while and honestly you just benefit more from free weights.

    I hate to sound horrible but can you honestly not find 3 hours a week to go to the gym. An hour after work on like a Monday an hour on a Thursday then an hour at any point during the weekend. You don’t need 8 hours as people suggest heck you probably don’t even need 3 hours.

    Three 30min sessions heck that’s pretty much all i do. SL 5x5 3 exercises 3 times a week and your done. Personally i think even with a job anyone can find 3 hours even if you have kids. Hundreds of thousands of people have jobs heck most of the Olympic athletes have some extracurricular job of some sort I know this as I work with one 9-5 every day (ps slightly different commitment I know but still you get my point.)

    .Sorry to sound negative but you won’t get the same results in the same time without it. I mean even buying a cheap squat rack for 40 quid and a 6ft bar with some weights for at home is better. ps squat rack will let you do everything you need as they adjust so can be used for bench ect.

    Buy Gymnast rings.....much much cheaper and you can do most things + some more.

    Trx is no way deserved of its price tag!!
