It’s not about TRX’ing more, it’s about TRX’ing better. Better mindful intent, isolation and muscle-centric TRX technique. Let’s look at 2 key basic technique points for the TRX Chest Press:
💪 TRX Technique Basic 1: THE STRETCH
At the bottom, get those elbows back and stretch the chest muscles out. 🎥 Refer to vid 19 secs in
Stay here for a second and feel that stretch, no bouncing.
💪 TRX Technique Basic 2: ELBOW TO ELBOW SQUEEZE
At the top, don’t bring the hands together. As the arms straighten out…
Focus on pushing the elbows together to initiate a powerful squeeze of the chest muscles…
And keep the hands outside of shoulder width. 🎥 Refer to vid 25 secs in
Imagine trying to nip a pen between the chest muscles.
Don’t push the hands together, push the elbows together.
Stay here SQUEEEZE and contract those chest muscles violently for 2 seconds.
👨🏼🏫 Why do we not bring the hands together inside shoulder width?
This takes the load and tension away from the chest muscles and onto the front shoulder muscles.
Lock shoulders back and down, and keep them there.
Stay safe stay healthy!
