TRX Body Saw
Start on the ground on your hands and knees with your feet in the foot cradles and your hands placed under shoulders. Plank up into a pushup position keeping your hands directly under your shoulders. Brace your core and make sure your ears, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles are all in line. Slowly rock forward and back just a few inches. Stop before you feel any strain on your lower back. Lower your knees to the ground.
TRX Push Up
Get in a push up position with your hands directly under your shoulders, and your feet in the foot cradles of the TRX Suspension Trainer. Brace your core and focus on keeping your shoulders, hips, knees and ankles all in line. Slowly lower your body until your nose is almost touching the ground. Use your arm and chest muscles to drive your body back up, maintaining a plank the whole time.
TRX Hip Press
Lay on your back with your heels in the foot cradles and your knees bent to 90 degrees, directly over your hips. Press your heels down and engage your core to thrust your hips up until they are in a perfect line with your knees and shoulders. Lower hips down in one slow, controlled motion to return.
TRX Single Arm Single Leg Squat
Stand facing the Suspension Trainer on your left leg holding one handle in your right hand. Keep your weight in your heels and focus on engaging your core as if you were performing a standing plank. Lower your hips down and back until your knee is bent just below 90 degrees. Keep your chest up, engage your core. Drive through your heel and extend your hips to stand back up. Repeat on both sides.
TRX Single Arm Biceps Curl
Stand sideways to the where the TRX Suspension Trainer is anchored, holding it by one handle with your inside hand so that your arm is perpendicular to your body. Brace your core and imagine you are performing a plank while standing up. Keeping you body totally rigid and your elbow high, curl yourself up until your elbow is bent a little more than 90 degrees. Lower yourself down in one slow and controlled motion. Repeat on both sides.
