Get 10X more from TRX Tricep training with this little adjustment⁣⁣. Several requests for targeting Ticeps this past week. Rather than go for random alternatives let’s crack on and master the basic first because it’s a great one…⁣⁣

TRX Skullcrusher⁣⁣

The key focus is to stretch the tricep right back behind your head, really get that elbow right behind and lengthen the long head of the tricep as much as possible (refer to 10secs into the video).⁣⁣

It may not be able to feel much at the time but I promise you the day after you will.⁣⁣

FOCUS⁣:

  • Don’t pause at the top**
  • … and don’t straighten arm out, this takes the load/tension off the tricep and transfers it through the shoulder joint. Keep a slight bend
  • Focus on squeezing the tricep hard to come up. Pushing the handles together will help with this⁣⁣
  • Shoulder blades retracted⁣⁣

TEMPO⁣:⁣⁣⁣

  • 4 sec downward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 0 sec pause at bottom⁣⁣⁣
  • 1 sec contraction upward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 0 sec contraction at top⁣⁣⁣

**…UNLESS! If you struggle to get a good contraction on the upward phase and find it hard to feel the tricep working (mind-muscle connection/activation), then do the below tempo and focus on squeezing super hard at the top for 2 secs…⁣⁣

..don’t worry about loosing tension as mentioned above, focus on mastering intent and feeling the muscle contract super hard first.⁣⁣

Pushing the handles together and squeezing the hell out of them with your arms fully extended will help, reduce intensity with feet positioning:⁣⁣

TEMPO (Contraction help)⁣:⁣⁣

  • 2 sec downward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 0 sec pause at bottom⁣⁣⁣
  • 1 sec contraction upward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 2 sec contraction at top⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Stay safe, stay healty
