Instructions: How To

Combines a TRX push-up with a knee tuck, targeting the chest, shoulders, core, and legs. This dynamic exercise improves overall strength, stability, and cardiovascular fitness, suitable for advanced fitness levels.

  1. Drop down to your hands and knees with your feet underneath the TRX anchor point.
  2. The TRX handles should be 1-2’ above the floor in order for you to put your feet into the handle straps.
  3. Brace your core to maintain a neutral spine as you lift your knees making a straight alignment from your heels to your shoulders and place your hands directly underneath your shoulders.
  4. Descend your chest to the floor by flexing your elbows past your sides at a 45 degree angle from your torso until your chest is just above the floor.
  5. Extend your arms before flexing both knees in towards your chest and returning to the starting position.
