How to do the Exercise
Step 1: The handles should be suspended just above the waist. Thus, the TRX cables need to be hanged at an elevated point.
Step 2: The handles are grabbed using both palms ensuring that the palms are facing down.
Step 3: While maintaining your body in a straight line, you need to lean forward making a 50-degree angle with the floor.
Step 4: Your hands should be directly over the shoulder. This can be achieved by letting your hands in.
Step 5: Arms are extended out and upwards.
Step 6: This motion is repeated for the number of reps that is set.
- The difficulty of exercise execution can be done by performing a more acute angle lean leaning your body.
- The core needs to be kept tight.
