I’ve been asked the question, or sometimes even told as a statement – “how the hell can I train hamstrings with a TRX” well it’s simple, it burns and it incorporates a ton of secondary muscle such as your glutes which you can shift the resistance too if that’s your goal. So more bang for your buck. TRX Hamstring curls.
And here’ the subtitle text in case you’d like to read the guidance:
hi TRX traveller Adam here this series is all about the basics of TRX 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 in this video we’ll focus on the hamstring curls the TRX hamstring curls and these are great for really burning out your hamstrings without the need for a weight people sometimes assume sorry without a weight people sometimes assume you can’t actually target your hamstrings very well or without the need to do a hamstring curl you can target them really well and really effectively with the TRX and you also engage quite a lot of secondary core muscle as you do it so what you’re going to need to do is get the TRX in a skew position and lower it down as much as it will go you don’t add the floor but you want it with a quite low and a decent gap if you need to put something down the floor so you’re not going to get too dirty because we need to lie down and I’ll back on the floor so get down and you’re going to put one heel in each of the straps so I’ve got one heel in there and I’ve got one heel in there and make sure both your legs are balanced so I just need to pull down on my right one there to get them both balanced and aligned then you want to tuck under a little bit not right under just a little bit lie on your back I like to keep my hands down by my side and what you’re going to do is lift your bum just a tiny bit and then pull your ankles to your bum and you’re going to hold for one two three and slowly down and back up for one two three and slowly down and back up for one two three and slowly down now you’ll notice is a bit of a distance here between my bum and the floor where I’m supporting myself as I’m bringing this up I’m really squeezing my hamstrings and I’m also squeezing my glutes too and also I can feel my car engaged my stomach is also engaged to you to hold me in this position but a lot of the prime we were at work it’s done with the hamstrings and slowly down and even in this position here I’m not dropping to the floor I’m keeping myself level I’m keeping in a plank position but on my back and I’m using my hand to support and that’s it it’s quite simple exercise but it’s very effective you’re really going to feel a burn in the hamstrings they wear down quite fast if you can get between seven and twelve reps somewhere in that rep range the higher the better fantastic make sure you stretch before and after these because any how strings can get tight very quickly any questions comments please leave them below I always get back to people please subscribe to my channel because I’m always talking about the correct form for TRX and how you can get the most and best out of it Fitness anywhere without the need for gym thanks for watching
