TRX (Upper Body) POSTERIOR CHAIN
One the USPs of the TRX is its ability to train every part of the body in a multitude of planes of movement.
This video shows a few different exercises that will target your back muscles, which, along with the hamstrings and glutes, make up your POSTERIOR CHAIN.
This group of muscles are crucial for maintaining good posture, protecting our spine and, in this ‘digital age’, balancing out the negative effects of the hours we spend hunched over a keyboard/smartphone/tablet (rounded shoulders, tight chest, curved spine).
1. Low row w/ twist: hits the largest back muscles (Latissimus Dorsi) as you pull through towards the bottom of the chest, with elbows and hands remaining tight to the body throughout 💪🏼
2. Y-raise > T-row: recruits the shoulders (Deltoids) and upper back muscles (Trapezius) in the Y-raise, before switching to hit the middle back (Rhomboids) in the T-row. A perfect superset 👌🏼
3. Power pull: these are the perfect single arm pull exercise to finish off your posterior chain. Biceps come into play here too, and who doesn’t love a bit of that...?! 😜
Have a crack at 3 x sets of 10 on each of these exercises and I guarantee that afterwards you’ll feel yourself standing up straighter, feeling taller and looking bang tidy too!
Happy Monday everyone 😊
