The TRX Single Leg Deadlift is a great preperatory exercise for the actual single leg (Romanian) deadlift. Fot those who lack the balance, or shoulder range of motion, the TRX is a great tool to help you get into the right position for learning this exercise; like ‘training wheels’ for the Deadlift.
The TRX Face Pull is similar to the TRX Wide Grip Rows, as well as the Low Row and Inverted Row in terms of body position. The difference is the pull. For this exercise, you will be pulling the TRX straps to your ears, which incorporates an external rotation of the shoulders.
The TRX Y-Fly is similar to the Face Pull, however, the arms are extended in a Y position, thereby making the exercise more challenging, due to the longer lever (ie: your arms extended). This is a great exercise for the rear delts, as well as the Rhomboid muscles between the shoulder blades.
The TRX Snow Angels exercise allows you to keep shoulder stability in the posterior shoulder girdle muscles (rear delts, Infraspinatus, rhomboids) while dynamically raising and lowering the arms, focusing on scapulo-humero rhythm. The goal of this exercise is to be aware of the scapula movement.
The TRX Side Plank exercise is again a variation of the regular floor side plank, with your feet suspended in the TRX straps. In addition, a rotation element is added to this side plank, which is great dynamic core stability work in the often neglected Transverse (rotational) plane of motion.
The TRX tabletop row is a derivative of the TRX Inverted Row and the TRX Low Row, with the arm position of the TRX Wide Grip Row. The defining position of this exercise is the ‘tabletop’ position. which automatically makes the exercise more difficult than the aforementioned ones.
The TRX Chest flye resembles a cable flye, or even a pec deck type flye. It is less of a compound exercise as the TRX push Up, which means the triceps and shoulders are not assisting with this movement. Because of this, the angle at which you will position yourself in order to effectively perform.
The TRX Pallof Press may appear to be a bilateral exercise, however, it needs to be performed on either side to be balanced. Although it appears to be a dynamic exercise, there is an isometric portion to this movement, offering a unique way to stabilize the shoulder girdle.
