Body Part:






Step 1: Begin with the TRX straps in the lowest point, a few inches above the ground. Place your feet in the straps so the tops of your feet are facing down. Face away from the anchor point.

Step 2: Place yourself into a strong plank position, keeping your feet in the straps. moving further away from the anchor point makes the exercise more challenging.

Step 3: While holding the strong plank position, bring your knees to your chest, then return to the starting plank position.

Step 4: Repeat this movement several times.


How to progress the exercise

As with the TRX Y-Fly, Being that your arms are being outstretched during this exercise, any slight change in angle will create sufficient change in overload to the muscles, so the best progression for this movement is to lower yourself by several degrees towards the floor. Lower yourself slightly more as needed.

Additional Information

As with the TRX Y-Fly, be mindful of your exercise form, as it is easy to compensate with the bigger lat muscles, or by thrusting your hips forward for momentum.

TRX Body Saw with Crunch

The TRX body saw with crunch may look easy but this subtle movement will make your core burn. It will help you to develop the perfect plank as you rock forward and backwards. You’ll feel your core, abdominals and shoulder muscles working more when you slide back.

TRX Anti-Extension Fallout

The TRX Anti-Extension Fallout is precisely to avoid spinal extension by maintaining a very strong plank throughout the movement. The TRX Kneeling Fallout is an easier version of this exercise and should be mastered before performing the straight legged Fallout.
