And here’ the subtitle text in case you’d like to read the guidance:

hi t-rex traveler Adam here this series is all about the basics of t-rex we’re going to focus on proper form and good technique and just run through the fundamentals and simple exercises covering the main muscle groups let’s get to it this video will focus on the chest muscle specifically the TRX chest press now the TRX is all about being unstable and all that sounds crazy but the fact that you’re on an angle to the TRX to the pivot point means your whole body’s unstable so you incorporate a lot more muscle groups a lot more secondary muscles I like to call this more bang for your buck when you’re in a gym or you’re on a bench you’re very stable and if you do in a test press with dumbbells you’re not over exaggerating any other muscle apart from the pectorals with the TRX you’re using a lot more muscle groups and especially your core to keep yourself focused it’s always more spent official with a TRX so take it slow so I’d always advise three seconds down nice control back up and squeeze at the top for three seconds now the chest press so get you to your ex in a solid place whether you attach it to something I’ll just put it through the door close the door like I’ve done here get both the grips of the t-rex over your shoulders now to find the right angle it’s a little bit of playing the easier it is the more you stand away from the TRX pivot point the harder it is the more you stand towards it I’d advise you just to stand maybe in a middle place because you want to be going for between 12 and 15 reps using the TRX to get the most out of it we’re looking at work and hypertrophy here so control slow lots of reps so find a comfortable position contract the back contract your shoulder blades back and we’re going to go nice and slow down for one two three hold there and feel that stretch across the pectoral muscles and then push back up and at the top I’m not putting my hands together but I’m squeezing my pectorals squeeze squeeze squeeze and then back down for one two three think of the stretch hold and squeeze at the top one two three and back down four one two three hold and explode and squeeze at the top one two three and that’s it that’s it CRX chest press keeping it really simple like I say the key benefit when you get to the top you squeeze the chest muscle so don’t bring your hands together keep them separate and squeeze that chest muscle really push it hard and then slowly down 1 2 3 explode up squeeze and hold and slowly down 1 2 3 throughout all that throughout at most TRX exercises your core it’s going to naturally engage you know you can’t really hold back without engaging your core so it’s just an added benefit you’re going to get a great core workout you’ll also feel your hips your legs and a bit of the lower back but the main primary muscle is your chest give it a go let me know how you get on don’t forget to subscribe to my channel for many more little tips on t-rex and exercises thanks for watching
