Don’t do TRX Flys without these technique tips. Even took the top off halfway through to prove a point (NO it’s not Margaret Thatcher on my chest, it’s my Nanna). Follow these key technique tips:
1. STRAIGHTEN YOUR ARMS
Refer to vid 10 sec in for demo explanation: At the top of the exercise straighten your arms and focus on squeezing your pectorals (chest muscles), like nipping a pen between them.
You will feel 10x more muscle contraction.
When the arms are bent at the top, the tension is also on the front shoulder muscle.
By straightening the arms as we reach the top of the motion we isolate the chest placing all the tension onto it.
2. RETRACT TO STRETCH THE CHEST
Bend at the elbow as you go back down on the negative phase and retract your shoulders blades back in a controlled manner to create as much stretch as possible (that you can comfortably/safely hold at the bottom)
Don’t create the stretch by straightening the arms pushing the hands behind behind body.
It could cause injury.
Try it in a standing position first to feel the difference.
