How to do the Exercise
Step 1: Hold one of the TRX handles by doing an overlapping grip.
Step 2: Take a step forward until your body creates a 45-degree angle, approximately .
Step 3: Drive your hands to one side but keep your arms straight while doing this step. This will result to the rotation of the torso.
Step 4: Go back to the center position to complete this repetition. Do the same steps above but this time, rotate the opposite way.
- Arms must be kept straight during the entire movement.
- The tautness of the rope should be maintained at all times to ensure proper execution of the exercise. Do not let the cables slack during the exercise.
- Make sure to twist the torso to the right and to the left as far as you can.
Since the TRX Torso Rotation is both an alternative and a calisthenics exercise, the main muscles being worked on are the abs. The lats and obliques are also targeted secondarily with this exercise.
The only equipment that is needed in this exercise is the TRX suspension. The other variation for this exercise can be achieved by increasing or decreasing the degree of difficulty when you adjust the angle you are standing.
