The TRX bent leg raise is an excellent beginner exercise to ensure core functions and performance. If performed correctly core function should improve rapidly over the course of a couple of weeks.

Man performing TRX Squat Row

TRX Squat Row

The TRX Squat Row is a combination exercise that not only is good for targeting both the upper and lower body at the same time to save time in your workouts but is a good way to learn transfer of energy from the lower body to the upper body in order to be more powerful in your movements.

Girl performing TRX Crunch

TRX Ab Crunch

The TRX Ab Crunch is the watered down version of the TRX Prone Pike and is pretty much similar to the Suspended Jackknife. It is a dynamic tuck position, bringing your knees to your chest. It is a strong core activator, while working the upper body isometrically to stabilize you through the movement

Girl performing TRX Single leg squat

TRX Pistol Squat

The TRX Pistol Squat is the same as the Single-Leg Squat. Holding onto the TRX starps while executing this movement allows you to maintain an upright position throughout the movement, but also works the scapular retractors (ie: the rhomboids) which help avoid the typical rounded shoulder posture typical of Western “office worker'” society.

TRX Plank

The TRX Plank exercise takes the regular plank position, from a stable floor environment, and adds a suspended leg variation to it, by putting your feet in the TRX straps. This adds another core stability to this basic stability exercise.

TRX Pull Up

TRX pull ups are a great adjunct to those wanting to perfect bar pull ups. It is also a great stand-alone exercise that is modifyable in order to enable you to better focus on your back muscles.

TRX Low Row

The TRX Low Row is similar to the TRX Inverted Row (see #4). The main difference is the pulling trajectory, which is lower than the former exercise. This will help keep the emphasis on the lats, as well as the mid to lower traps.
