Get 10x more from TRX tricep training with this little adjustment

Get 10X more from TRX Tricep training with this little adjustment⁣⁣…

Several requests for targeting Triceps this past week.

Rather than go for random alternatives let’s crack on and master the basic first because it’s a great one…⁣⁣

TRX Skullcrusher⁣⁣

The key focus is to stretch the tricep right back behind your head, really get that elbow right behind and lengthen the long head of the tricep as much as possible (refer to 10secs into the video).⁣⁣

It may not be able to feel much at the time but I promise you the day after you will.⁣⁣


  • Don’t pause at the top**
  • … and don’t straighten arm out, this takes the load/tension off the tricep and transfers it through the shoulder joint. Keep a slight bend
  • Focus on squeezing the tricep hard to come up. Pushing the handles together will help with this⁣⁣
  • Shoulder blades retracted⁣⁣


  • 4 sec downward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 0 sec pause at bottom⁣⁣⁣
  • 1 sec contraction upward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 0 sec contraction at top⁣⁣⁣

**…UNLESS! If you struggle to get a good contraction on the upward phase and find it hard to feel the tricep working (mind-muscle connection/activation), then do the below tempo and focus on squeezing super hard at the top for 2 secs…⁣⁣

..don’t worry about loosing tension as mentioned above, focus on mastering intent and feeling the muscle contract super hard first.⁣⁣

Pushing the handles together and squeezing the hell out of them with your arms fully extended will help, reduce intensity with feet positioning:⁣⁣

TEMPO (Contraction help)⁣:⁣⁣

  • 2 sec downward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 0 sec pause at bottom⁣⁣⁣
  • 1 sec contraction upward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 2 sec contraction at top⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Stay safe, stay healty

How to do TRX Reverse Curls To Build Bigger Arms

Normal bicep curls, or hammer grip, aren't the only, or best, suspension trainer arms exercise to build your guns... The TRX reverse curl target and build the brachialis muscle that lies under your bicep and tricep. Building this muscle pushes the tricep and bicep...

Discover your TRX or Band Program… 


I'm new to using a TRX or Band, where shall I start?

First up, welcome! Out of all the millions of websites out there thank you for visiting this one. Secondly, your interest and motivation will change your life. It did for me and thousands of fitness freedom athletes in our community of all ages.

The best place to start would be with the Beginner TRX Total Body Transformation Program. It’s the most popular Program and will teach you the effective muscle-centric TRX technique to transform your body and begin your life-changing journey.

If you’re seeking a resistance band Program, get stuck into the Band Muscle Toning Program which is for beginners/intermediates to learn the band muscle-centric technique and transform their body with just one resistance band.

Do you have any training courses or Workout Programs?

Yes absolutely, I have TRX Suspension Trainer & Resistance Band Programs for all levels and fitness goals. They will teach you the effective 'Muscle-Centric Technique' that will transform your body!

There are so many 'scammers' online, how can I trust you?

I guess at first, you shouldn’t. Trust is built and earned over time. Check out my reviews and success stories so you can get a better understanding of what I am about and who I help.

Or stalk me on social so you can see that this is my passion and mission in life:





Where are you based?

I am mainly based in London, UK. But I love travelling, specifically backpacking our beautiful world and experiencing other cultures... So most likely I may be based on the side of a mountain or little beach hut. Perhaps I’ll even meet you in person at some point… That would be just awesome!
