Have you planned your New Year resolutions for your fitness goals? Probably yes, but to achieve that aesthetic physique, you have to change your workout time. It’s the perfect time to ditch your dumbbells, weight training machines, and kettlebells. Yes, you don’t have to ditch them permanently, but TRX training techniques will undoubtedly replace them.
In this New Year, you should add something new to your training routine and achieve a flawless physique. TRX (short for total-body resistance exercise) converts every exercise into a challenging task for the gym-goer.
Now let’s have a look at the best exercises which you can do with TRX.
TRX Inverted Row
This technique directly targets your lats and biceps. It is one of the best exercises to transform your overall physique. The inverted row exercise is highly recommended for beginners. Grab the handles with your palms and form a straight plank position with the help of your feet. Make sure you don’t strain your lower back by tightening your core.
Bend the elbows to pull your torso towards upwards directions. Your back and biceps muscles will contract as you raise and lower your torso. You can perform this exercise with straight legs.
Now the next exercise which comes in our list is the TRX push-ups. This exercise is primarily for the experts, but beginners can also perform it. This exercise targets your arms, chest, and shoulders. Now, stop doing your normal yet less effective push-up and try TRX push-ups. Hook your toes tightly to the stirrups and touch your feet on the floor.
Try to lift your body upwards, and the bodyweight will automatically rest on the palms of your hands. Now, you have to keep your core tight, bend your elbows to lower your chest. You’ll feel the muscle contraction between your chest and shoulders.
Kneeling Triceps Press
Triceps are one of the smallest muscles of your body. You actually train your biceps and triceps simultaneously. Whether you are a beginner or expert, this exercise will effectively train your triceps muscle. You’ll surely feel that pain and pumping up of triceps muscle. Grab the handles with a grip and slowly stretch your arms.
Start bending your elbows to lower the upper body until your core is straight and tight. This is the time when you’ll start feeling the pain in your triceps muscle. Remember, you have to return to the starting position slowly.
This is one of the best TRX exercises, especially for experts. It simultaneously transforms your abs, biceps, shoulders, and back. This compound movement contracts every muscle of your upper body. Row up your palms with a minimum of 3 reps per grip. Pull your body towards upwards direction and keep your elbows close to your rib cage.
You have to follow this compound movement slowly without straining your lower back. Injuries are also possible if your posture is not correct while performing this exercise.
