44 Insanely Effective TRX Exercises

Targets: Triceps
Difficulty: Beginner
How to: Target those tris with this no-frills move. Kneel down facing the anchor and grab the straps with an underhand grip. Stretch arms straight out in front of you and hold them shoulder-width apart. Bend elbows to lower your upper body toward the floor until hands are in line with your ears—this is when you’ll start to feel those triceps burn. Return to start.

10 Suspension Trainer Exercises for a Full Body Workout

To do the Basic Inverted Row, hold a suspension trainer strap in each hand. Walk your feet out so you are leaning back. The closer to parallel to the ground you get, the harder the move will be. Squeeze your core and glutes and press your chest out so there is tension between your shoulder blades. Then row up, keeping your body in a nice straight line. Row until your chest comes up to the handles and then lower yourself back down. Don’t let your hips sink as you lower back down. Also, keep your chest pressed out the entire time (do not let your low back arch though).

After performing a few exercises fully suspended Dawne asked me to walk around the studio and it’s amazing how different you feel after such a short space of time. Back on firm ground I felt taller, leaner and lighter immediately – it was very strange. Post-class I could definitely feel aching in my arms and core too – the sign of a good workout for sure and I was much more aware of my posture I normally am. I’ll definitely be heading back – I’m a long way off achieving an A-list body, but I’m working on it.
