Total Body Resistance Exercise, or it's more popular name "TRX", is a full body workout using your own body for resistance.  Also, with unstable straps, it forces you to stabilize with your core or power house.  We can get into the deepest squat using the TRX.  It will get you strong quickly.  And definitely give you the confidence to wear your favorite shorts!
