TRX Push Ups

Level up your push-up with TRX Suspension Training

Although this exercise primarily works the chest, shoulders and triceps, it also engages the abs, lower back and glutes in the same way your basic push-up engages them.

Whether you just want more variations or in need of additional challenges, TRX can be your savor. 

Performing push-ups or any other bodyweight exercise using TRX Suspension Training is not only a great way to up your bodyweight exercise, but also help you ease up its difficulty just as easily for those times you just need to take it easy.  

TRX is a powerful resistance training tool that comes with two straps and utilizes gravity to challenge your body. It’s a perfect tool to leve up your classic push-ups and tone up your upper body. 

TRX Push-up primarily targets your core and chest but is also effective at engaging your entire body by using the movements and gravity created by your own bodyweight.

Difficulty Level:

Simply adjust your body angle to change the intensity. Stepping out makes your body more vertical, thus ease the intensity. Stepping in deeper makes your body more parallel to the floor and makes your pushups more challenging. 

Find the body position that’s right for you, and get your pushups to another level! 

How to do it:

  1. Stand facing away from the anchor point of the TRX with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Grab and hold the handles at your chest level in front of you. Extend your arms fully and keep palms facing the ground. Keep your body aligned from head to heels and tighten your abs. 
  3. Bend elbows and lower your chest to the handles. Press down against the handles with arms to return to the starting position. Repeat 10-12 times.
