Bodies by Design Fitness Tips
Shawn uses the TRX Suspension Trainer to perform a four-exercise circuit, all of which involve the core muscles.
To complete this TRX circuit, place your feet in the strap holds and get into a prone (face-down) position with your hands on the ground. The first move is a pushup, so make sure your core is tight and you’re not letting your lower back sink as your perform each repetition. The second exercise is a reverse crunch. For this, hold yourself up and bring both knees toward your chest simultaneously and then both knees back. The third move is a tricep pushup. It’s similar to the first exercise, but for this one bring your hands closer together and your elbows in toward your body as your lower yourself, and then focus on pushing through your triceps (the muscles on the back of your arm) on the upwards motion. The last exercise is a mountain climber. It’s similar to move #2, but for this one you alternate each leg instead of tucking both knees at the same time. This is a difficult exercise but it will increase your heart rate.
