Instructions: How To

This exercise is a combination of a few bodyweight movements with a TRX strap. These movements primarily target your back. By pulling yourself up, and extending one arm out to the side, you can focus your attention on that side, and ensure that you aren’t compensating for any weaknesses between sides. Because the resistance is caused by leaning back on the straps, you can easily adjust your resistance, even in the middle of your set.

  1. Lean backwards as you grab the TRX handles with extended arms in front of your shoulders with your palms facing each other.
 Pull your chest towards the TRX anchor by sliding your right elbow past your side and laterally pulling your left extended arm to a 3 o’clock position.
 Return to the starting position before repeating the sequence with your left arm pulling downward to a 6 o’clock position and then a 12 o’clock position.
 Repeat with the opposite side.

Common Mistakes

  • Adjusting Difficult with TRX

    Copying someone else’s form is usually a great way to learn an exercise. With TRX straps, it can be a bit more tricky. Adjusting where you stand in relation to the anchor point will add more or less resistance to the exercise. Make sure you’re positioning yourself in a way that gives you the proper resistance for your current capabilities.
