Undersun Fitness’ Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do you follow each workout module?

    Once you’re on the workout page, you’re ready to get started. We’ve tried to add as much detail as possible to answer any possible questions. Each Round, or “module”, has 3 components:

    Videos:  For every round of HIIT and TABATA there is a video, with TA2 Co-Creator, and Fitness Expert, Annik Nayler, that coaches you through the round exercise by exercise. You can either watch the videos and do the program, or put your headphones in and listen to the audio only.

    Photos: For every round, there are two photos next to each exercise, demonstrating what the exercise looks like at the beginning of the movement and the end.

    Description:  At the top of each HIIT or Tabata round, or “module”, it tells you how long to do each exercise and how long to rest between each exercise. 

    Here’s an example for HIIT: (60 Seconds On - 30 Seconds Rest). This means you will do each exercise in that round for 60 seconds, at high intensity, and then rest 30 seconds before starting the next exercise.

  • How much rest between each round?

    In each day’s workout, you will alternate between rounds of HIIT and TABATA. Once you finish each round, you will rest for 30-seconds before starting the next round.  

  • What is an "anchored" exercise?

    In the first 4-weeks of the TA2 program you will be doing exercises where you only need to anchor the bands with your own body. As we move into month 2 we bring in new exercises that require you to anchor one end of the band to something secure. Depending on the exercise, sometimes an anchor point may be either high, low or in the middle.  If you’re in a park you can anchor the bands to a pull-up bar. If you’re in a gym you can anchor them to a piece of workout equipment. If you’re at home, the office, or a hotel, you can use the optional Undersun Door Anchor and attach the bands at any height to virtually any door.

  • Why are all the month-1 exercises unanchored?

    By learning all the exercises that you can do, by anchoring the band with only your body, you are creating an arsenal of exercises that you can do virtually anywhere. This way even if you don’t have an anchor point, you’ll never have to compromise one of your workouts. So think of Month-1 as not just an introduction to resistance band training, but also as your foundation exercises.

  • What if I can't do the workouts exactly the way they were designed?

    It’s OK if you can’t finish the workout in the same amount of time, or fashion, that it’s laid out. The most important thing is challenging yourself with each workout. Fitness is all about small incremental steps that all add up over time. Just do what you can do in the workout, as long as you know that you are challenging yourself. Take breaks if you need to, or even modify the exercises as suggested in the videos, if you need to. Remember that fitness is a journey, not a destination. Just as long as you don’t quit you will eventually reach your goals.

  • Is there a progression to the program?

    To maximize your results, each week of the TA2 program gradually gets more challenging, with the introduction of new exercises, longer rounds and in the final weeks less rest.

  • What does the name "TA2" stand for?

    TA2 stands for “Train Anywhere. Train Anytime”, and with the TA2 Muscle Building program, paired with Undersun Resistance Bands, you will have the freedom to do precisely that. Don't be fooled with all that flexibility though, TA2 is a true muscle building and strength program.

  • What makes this program different than other resistance band programs?

    Most of the resistance band programs out there are designed as full-body workouts. The downside of this style of training is that it's almost impossible to give each muscle group the concentrated attention they need to maximize muscle development. TA2 was designed using a weekly muscle building "split" with each muscle-group trained on separate days. This approach allows for multiple exercises per body-part, a higher quality of work, and ultimately more muscle.
