TRX Suspension Trainer Push-ups

About the Form & Proper Execution of TRX Suspension Trainer Push-ups

The straps on the TRX allow you to suspend your legs which puts extra demand on your core muscles. During standard push-ups this instability places extra demand on the stabilizer muscles of your shoulders as well as your core.

With both knees on the ground, put your feet in the TRX straps. Keep your core tight and drawn in as you raise your hips into push-up position. Keep your spine in neutral alignment and lower your chest towards the ground as far as possible as you inhale. Exhale and push yourself back up to the original position.

To target your chest more, move your hands out further away from each other. To target shoulders and triceps more, have your hands positioned closer to your body.

Always keep a rigid and neutral spine for the duration of this and all TRX suspension trainer exercises.
