Turn It Up with TRX

TRAINER TUESDAY

by Kate Dewar, RD, LDN

Add some extra core work to these isolated upper body movements to make your workout more efficient!

Circuit: 3-4 Rounds ; 10-12 Reps

TRX Row

Lean forward with one arm holding your bodyweight on the TRX and arm pushing straight down. With a dumbbell in the other hand, complete 10-12 reps of a row. The further you lean forward, the more the core engages.

TRX Pull in-Press

Hang from the TRX with one hand. Keep the shoulders relaxed away from the ears. Bring the dumbbell in the other hand to your shoulder and press up as you pull yourself in with the other arm.

TRX Front Fly

Lean forward with one arm holding your bodyweight on the TRX.  With the dumbbell in your free hand, bring the weight from a hanging position all the way up to your ear. Keep the hips in line to form a nice straight line from your shoulders to ankles.

TRX Side Fly

Lean forward with one arm holding your bodyweight on the TRX.  With the dumbbell in your free hand, bring the weight from a hanging position all the way out to the side.

TRX Squat to Press

With the TRX in one hand and a dumbbell in the other, perform a squat with the weight hanging straight down. Begin to stand and pull yourself in to the TRX, while simultaneously performing a bicep curl into a shoulder press with the other arm. Talk about coordination!
