Seven Moves Of TRX

If you are new to TRX there are simple moves that can help you get started. Do not feel overwhelmed with what you see around you; advanced fitness enthusiasts might be doing more complex movements, but that should not keep you from doing the simple moves that are effective as well.

With TRX you will be involved in a fast, effective and fun form of bodyweight training. You will build muscles as well as burn fat, and improve flexibility and endurance. There are seven simple moves that will help you get started. These are the pull, push, lunge, squat, hinge rotate, and plank movements. The best part of TRX is that you use your body as a machine, and this training method helps to unleash the full potential of fitness that lies within you.

Pull:  In the pull move, lean back as you hold the handles. Form a strong plank position with shoulders pulled back and held down. Maintain the plank position and pull your chest up. Then lower yourself in a controlled and slow manner, back to your original position.

Push:  The chest press is the push move that you do with the TRX handles in front. When doing this move, tighten your core and lean your weight on the handles with your knees, ankles, shoulders, and hips well aligned.  

Lunge:  The lunge move is done while both feet are in the cradles of the TRX.

Squat:  When you do the squat move, stack your elbows under your shoulders and keep your feet hip width apart.  Keep your weight on your heels as you lower your hips and come back.

Hinge:  To do the hinge move, extend your arms with your knees bent as you press down on the handles. Ensure that you bend forward from the hips.

Rotate:  Place your arms in a T position, shift your hips forward and rotate your torso.


Plank:  The plank move requires you to be in a plank push-up position with your hands under your shoulders. Tighten your core muscles as you lower your knees to ground level.
