TRX Suspension Trainer Plank

About the Form & Proper Execution of TRX Suspension Trainer Plank

The TRX Suspension Trainer plank is a great core stabilization exercise. Assume a prone position on the floor facing away from the TRX. Your forearms should be flat on the floor shoulder width apart.

Place the insteps of both your feet in the TRX straps and lift your hips until your torso is around parallel with the floor. Squeeze your glutes, draw in your core and rotate your pelvis to the posterior.

In order for plank exercises to be effective you must make sure your pelvis does not rotate to the anterior. To ensure this, keep your glutes contracted tightly the entire time you are in the plank position.

Like most core exercises, if you don't "feel it" you are not performing it properly and you likely need the help of a certified personal trainer.  The TRX suspension trainer plank is not for beginners.  Make sure you properly progress from the floor plank before you advance to any more difficult exercises.
