Step 1: Starting Position: Holding the TRX handles in each hand, turn yourself to face away from the anchor point. Position your hands overhead with a 90-degree bend in your elbows, and elbows pointing forward with neutral wrists. Assume a split-stance position, lunging forward until the straps become tight. Maintain this foot position throughout the exercise. Stiffen your torso by bracing your core.
Step 2: Upward Phase: Exhale and slowly extend your elbows by pressing your body away from your arms. Your upper arms should not move, your elbows should continue to point forward, and your wrists should remain in the neutral position. Maintain a stiff torso aligning your head and spine, and avoid any sagging or arching in your low back or hips.
Step 3: Downward Phase: While maintaining a stable torso, inhale and slowly lower your body back towards your starting position keeping your head and spine aligned together. You can increase the intensity of this exercise by positioning your body further away from the anchor point of the TRX and lengthening the straps.
