Objective Proper posture results from musculoskeletal balance, which is associated with a minimal amount of muscle tension. Due to some structural differences between men and women, their movement patterns are different. The prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders is higher in women than in men.  This study aims to evaluate the effect of 6 weeks of TRX exercises on upper and lower extremity function in women with lower crossed syndrome (LCS).
Methods This is a quasi-experimental study with a pre-test/post-test design. Participants were 30 women with LCS  aged 30-40 years in Marivan county, Iran. The upper extremity function was evaluated by the Y balance test and Davis test, and the lower extremity function was measured by the side hop test and the square hop test. Data analysis was done in SPSS software, version 21 using analysis of covariance. The significance level was set at 0.05.
Results TRX exercises had significant effects on the function of upper and lower extremities in Davis test, Y balance test (at medial, superolateral, and inferolateral directions), side hop test, and square hop test (P<0.001).
Conclusion Six weeks of TRX exercises can improve the upper and lower extremity function of middle-aged women with LCS, probably by increasing the strength and efficiency of core muscles. Trainers and physiotherapists can use this training method to improve the function of lower and upper extremities in these women.
