Step 3: Straighten out your arms at about face level.

Step 4: While keeping both hands at face level, pull the body inwards.

Step 5: When pulling the body inwards, make a 90-degree angle bend of your elbows.

Step 6: Complete one repetition by letting the body fall backwards and down allowing the arms to become straight again.


  • The level of difficulty of this exercise can be adjusted depending on the body’s angle when leaning backwards.
  • It is best to ensure that the TRX cables are adjusted to the appropriate height before commencing exercise.

The only TRX Face Pull equipment needed in this exercise is the TRX suspension. Other variation that can be made for this type of TRX exercise are the following: TRX External Rotation, TRX Lying Row, and TRX Low Row.
