Step 1: Assume a strong plank position at a 45-degree angle, holding your feet further than shoulder width apart for more stability; glutes, core and shoulders are nicely engaged,
Step 2: Set the TRX straps to a few inches off the floor. Hold onto each handle and brace your arms downward before beginning this movement.
Step 3: Raise your arms forward in a controlled manner. Synchronize the movement by subsequently lowering your body until it is as close to in line with your outstretched arms as possible.
Step 4: From the fully extended position, begin to get yourself back up to the starting position by pressing downward with your extended arms. Maintain the straight line of your body from your head to your knees by keeping your core engaged, and your glutes tight.
Step 5: Repeat this movement several times.
How to progress the exercise
The further you lean back into this exercise, the more challenging it becomes. Also, holding the front leg slightly off the floor will add more core activation to this exercise.
Holding a strong plank is important for this exercise. If a revision is needed, refer to the TRX Plank.
