If the TRX skull crusher focuses on the pop of the upper tricep muscle these focuses on the length. Marry the two together and there’s some some serious under-arm armour.

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

hi TRX traveler 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 alright in this video we’re going to look at the triceps and we’re going to do is skull crusher but with a neutral grip now the triceps has three heads hence the name try so my other video I talked a lot about em the skull crusher with a normal grip which is where you hold mate your head and you’re extending out now to change that up and hit a different head of the tricep we’re going to shift our grip to a hammer grip or a neutral grip so the skull crusher is going to be held like this and to do that we’re going to use the straps to support ourself as opposed to the handle as always the air and when you do these skull crushers the TRX skull Crusher’s there’s a massive amount use of your core and your abs you really get solid ab workout loads of bang for your buck on this one I love it alright as always make sure the TRX is nice and secure get it all over your shoulders and I want you to grab the straps here so you grab on the bottom of the straps like that find where it’s comfortable with your feet as always if you stand a little bit further out it’s a little bit easier a little bit further back and it’s a lot harder I would play around find what works for you find what’s comfortable again it’s always about good form good technique nice slow movement contracting the muscle at top making it work it’s not about pushing yourself too much about taking your time and stability so hammer grip make sure you’ve got a little bit of tension at the top there always looking straight ahead my stomach’s I’m contracting my stomach to keep me here which kind of happens naturally and what you’re going to do is you’re going to bend the arms until your thumbs touch the top of your head and you’re going to squeeze and push up push up push up and squeeze at the top squeeze the triceps but what I’m doing here I’m pushing my knuckles together I’m pushing my hands together like this at the top here just exaggerate that squeeze even more so let’s start this again here we go one two three down and squeeze up squeeze at the top on two three and then one two three down and squeeze and push up one two three and one two three down touching the top the head score isn’t push up one two three now I can already feel that after 3 seconds burning now the reason we only go to our head and we don’t take it further beyond these points is because it just puts too much strain on the elbow so may argue that it’s not doing the full range of movement because you’re not going back but I promise you the key to muscle development and putting the muscle is it wearing the muscle down so it builds it’s putting it under tension and contraction and it’s time under tension which promotes a muscle growth and we’re getting a lot of time under tension from that negative phase and the squeeze at the top now there’s plenty of other exercises you can cooperate such as chair dick if you really want to exaggerate and get a full length contraction but I still promise you with this you’ll still get a really good workout on your triceps even when you just go onto there which in my opinion is more than enough and so yet just be very careful not to go too far back because you will start to feel pain in your joints and that’s not what one character is all about control it’s about flexibility it’s about functional fitness give them a try and let me know how you feel any questions comments please leave them in the comment section below I always get back to people please subscribe to my channel for many more TRX workouts and how to workout without a gym anywhere look out for the rest of the series the beginner series where I cover all muscle groups thanks for watching
