The TRX Suspended Pendulum is also known as TRX Pendulum or TRX Pendulum Swing. It is both an alternative and a calisthenics exercise that mainly targets the abs. The secondary muscles being targeted are the glutes, hip flexors, lower back, obliques and shoulders.
It is much easier to perform the exercise on your elbows. Using the TRX Suspension, variations can be included in this exercise. You can perform a TRX Jackknife and a TRX Plank together with this exercise.
