How to do the Exercise

Step 1: By using an overhand grip, grab onto the TRX handles. With an offset foot position. Lean back at a 45-degree angle with an overhand grip.

Step 2: Make sure that the hands are close together with arms completely straight out.  and hands close together, commence exercise by pushing your hands down and back.

Step 3: Continue step 2 until fully retracted hands behind your back and shoulder blades are achieved. One repetition is completed at this point.


  • An offset position of your feet must be kept in order for you to fall back on the heel of the leading foot.
  • Arms also need to be kept straight, with only a slight bend in your elbows.


The TRX Swimmer’s Pull is both an alternative and calisthenics exercise that also majorly targets the lats. It also secondarily targets the forearms, shoulders, triceps and abs.

This TRX exercise also uses the TRX suspension. Other variations of the TRX Swimmer’s Pull include performing a traditional row. Decreasing the incline (lay back closer to the ground) will also vary the level of difficulty in performing the exercise.
