Instructions: How To

This is a compound, bodyweight exercise that primarily targets your back. Because you’re only holding the straps with one hand, you need to stabilize your upper body as you perform the movement. In addition, you aren’t able to compensate for any weaknesses between sides. You can easily adjust the resistance of this exercise by moving yourself closer or further from the anchor point.

  1. Stand upright holding onto the TRX handles with a bent right arm in front of your right shoulder.
 Keep a straight line from your shoulders to your heels as you fall backward extending your right arm and simultaneously rotating your torso to the left to reach your left arm behind you.
 Bend your right elbow to return to the starting position and 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.
