Work your entire upper body with these TRX moves

Tax your entire upper body by adding a twist to the TRX row. By Andy McDermott, CPT

DURATION 15 MIN
EXERCISES 5
EQUIPMENT NEEDED TRX

WHAT IT IS
A five-exercise, five-round circuit that focuses on full-body pulling exercises. The one-arm rotational pull hits the arms, back, core, and shoulders as you work to stay in control while completing the movement; TRX squat curls target the biceps; hand walkouts challenge core stability; and mountain climbers ensure that your heart rate never dips.

WHY IT WORKS
Training multiple muscle groups at the same time is more efficient than honing in on just one. So consider ditching the biceps curls and cable rows on your next pull day and instead move through different planes of movements that will recruit more muscles, burn more calories, and build total-body strength.

STAY ON THE BALL
When performing the rotational pull, shift your weight to the balls of your feet for better control and proper weight distribution.
