TRX Training

At KAH, we use a TRX Suspension Training system to train our clients. TRX  is a fitness tool made from high quality nylon. It has handles at the bottom and is durable to hold up to 1400 pounds. TRX is portable; you can set it up anywhere. It’s a total-body training system that allows you to do all sorts of exercises using your body weight. You have to use your core stabilizers to work out with TRX, so you build your core, strength, balance, agility and power.

The TRX Row exercise is good for the strength development of the upper back.  While the TRX Row mainly works the scapula stabilizers and other muscles in the back, this exercise also strengthens your hand grip, shoulders, and core while using your own body weight.

To perform the TRX Row exercise:

1  Shorten the TRX straps all the way up.

2  Set your body in a straight line, as if you were in a vertical plank position.

3  While keeping your arms straight, walk your feet forward until there is tension in the straps. This is starting position.

4  Make sure to keep your palms facing each other throughout the lift.

5  To begin the movement, retract your shoulder blades back and down.

6  Now, pull your torso towards your hands keeping your elbows close to your body.

7   Your body should remain rigid and your palms and wrists should stay neutral.

8  Lower your body back to the starting position and repeat.

9  If the exercise is too easy, move feet a bit farther forward. If it is too difficult with correct form, move your feet back a bit.

 

As always, if you are unsure how to perform this exercise, seek help from a trained professional!
