Best 4 TRX Shoulder Exercises to Transform Your Body – Ditch The Dumbbells!

July 04, 2024

In this video we’re going to look at the best 4 TRX exercises to transform your shoulders.

And how to perform them with a TRX technique that’s more effective than using dumbbells.

I’ll break down each of the 4 TRX exercises and what you need to do for maximum muscle building results…

(There’s additional technique tips below the vid for each TRX exercise)

As with all TRX exercises, you need to focus on your 2 things for the best transformational results:

1 – Muscle-centric technique

2 – Your mind-muscle connection

Both are intertwined.

By doing this, you essentially make the exercises ‘harder’.

You isolate your shoulder muscles and place the majority of your body weight load onto them.

One muscle area handling the majority of the load creates a big muscle growth stimulus.

This is how you build muscle with a TRX consistently.

Let’s break each TRX Suspension Trainer exercise down…

#1 – TRX Side Raises

Keep a short strap length.

Make sure to squeeze your arm hard before you begin the exercise movement.

The aim is to do little pumps, a short range of motion, to keep tension on the middle shoulder muscle.

Don’t hang at the bottom.

You’ll lose tension on the shoulder muscle.

Come back up before your arm is parallel to the floor

#2 – TRX Facepulls

To get an even bigger rage of motion, you can stretch your arms at the bottom.

Ensure you stretch and DON’T hang.

Remember, we want to keep tension on the muscle.

Hanging means the load is lost and transferred onto the shoulder joints.

As you squeeze your shoulder muscles to pull up, rotate your knuckles and the TRX straps upwards.

You’ll feel an extra squeeze here. It feels awesome and it’s where the burn kicks in!

Drive your knuckles past your nose. That’s where you want to aim.

#3 TRX Front Raises

Again, similar to the side raises, the aim is keep a constant tension on the muscles by squeezing your shoulders throughout the set.

Little pumps up and down, ensuring you don’t hang and lose tension at the bottom.

Squeeze super hard at the top.

Pull on the straps to help with this.

#4 TRX Shoulder Press

If you don’t make the exercise harder, these TRX shoulder presses will feel super easy.

Focus on your technique, let go of ego.

Squeezing your entire arms to create constant tension on your shoulder muscles is essential!

Push up and outwards. Not just up… Outwards too.

This helps keep tension on the shoulder muscles.

Pause at the top, squeeze super hard and pull your arms back down.
