Welcome to the Workout of the Week series. Each week, we'll have a new workout for you to try. They're generally quick and require minimal equipment, so they shouldn't interfere with whatever training program you're following. Enjoy!
Need To Know:Do this workout as a circuit (don't rest until you're done with all three exercises). Rest one to two minutes, then repeat two or three more times.
1) TRX Pullup x30 seconds
Depending on how high the anchor is, you might have to shorten the straps beyond the "short" length indicator.
Keep your torso as vertical as possible.
2) TRX Split Squat x8/side
The straps introduce a tough balance challenge, so don't be afraid to hold onto something until you're comfortable with the motion.
3) TRX Crunch to Pike x10
One rep = one crunch and one pike.
The pike can feel awkward, but as long as your butt moves above your head, you're probably fine.
4) TRX Single Arm Chest Press x8/side
Be careful not to dip your non-working shoulder (you're going to want to!).
5) TRX Loaded Hip Press
The easiest way to load this is with a dumbbell or kettlebell held over your hips.
You don't actually have to load it, but it's recommended for anyone past the beginner level.
