Since the TRX Bicep Curl is both alternative and calisthenics exercise, the primary muscle group target is the biceps. Secondary muscles that are worked out during the exercise are the shoulders and forearms. The only equipment needed in this exercise is the TRX Suspension. However, you can also incorporate other TRX exercise variations like TRX Low Row and TRX Tricep Extension.
In addition, the TRX Bicep Curl does not just engage the use of muscles in the biceps. The force in maintaining the body in a straight alignment also aids in the hip and midsection stabilizer which makes it equivalent to having a total body workout.
