Step 1: The TRX Suspension should be firmly placed at a certain height allowing the handles to hang at chest level.

Step 4: Once the arms reach to a 90-degree angle, rotate both hands up over the head.

Step 5: Rotate both hands back down.

Step 6: To complete one repetition, return to the position wherein the body is back outward.
