The TRX Supine Hip Extension to Leg Curl is similar to the TRX Hip Thrust. The added component is a hip extension. So, instead of beginning with the legs bent and pushing through your heels, you are now beginning this movement with the legs extended outright, and smoothly bringing your legs.
The TRX Jump Squat will help to develop the elastic force component of your legs, for more explosive jumps. Ideal for those interested in developing their jumping ability. It is also a good variation of the regular squat, as it will prime your lower body muscles to contract faster and with a greater force.
The TRX split Squat with Y Deltoid Fly is a good preparatory exercise for Weight lifting exercises where you need the barbell held up and behind you whilst you are squatting or lunging. Not only is good anterior shoulder girdle (esp. the pectorals) and Thoracic spine flexibility required.
The TRX Step Back Lunge is similar to the TRX Bulgarian Split Squathowevere you are holding the TRX straps in your hands, and the back leg, although not anchored in any straps, still does not touch the ground. Working the glutes and hamstrings of the unsupported leg going back.
The TRX Squat and Lunge are the same versions of the standard Squat and Lunge, only with the added benefit of holding onto the TRX straps for added balance and posture. Squats and lunges are indeed basic exercises that should be incorporated into exercise routines, as they are movements.
The TRX Single Leg Deadlift is a great preperatory exercise for the actual single leg (Romanian) deadlift. Fot those who lack the balance, or shoulder range of motion, the TRX is a great tool to help you get into the right position for learning this exercise; like ‘training wheels’ for the Deadlift.
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.
The TRX Face Pull is similar to the TRX Wide Grip Rows, as well as the Low Row and Inverted Row in terms of body position. The difference is the pull. For this exercise, you will be pulling the TRX straps to your ears, which incorporates an external rotation of the shoulders.
The TRX Y-Fly is similar to the Face Pull, however, the arms are extended in a Y position, thereby making the exercise more challenging, due to the longer lever (ie: your arms extended). This is a great exercise for the rear delts, as well as the Rhomboid muscles between the shoulder blades.
The TRX Snow Angels exercise allows you to keep shoulder stability in the posterior shoulder girdle muscles (rear delts, Infraspinatus, rhomboids) while dynamically raising and lowering the arms, focusing on scapulo-humero rhythm. The goal of this exercise is to be aware of the scapula movement.
