I love the secondary muscle and core stability incorporation on these. Again, a tun of bang for your buck. Focus on squeezing your triceps to create the movement.
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 okay in this video we’re going to be focused on a TRX triceps now this is the beginner so this is the main the main TRX exercise to really work your triceps again the secondary muscles which I love about TRX always incorporates a lot of secondary muscles for stability a lot of cores going to be used on this you’re really going to feel you’re cause you’re doing them the exercise is called a TRX Skullcrusher and it basically means that you press away from your school now two key things to remember when you do in this when you hold on the TRX again it’s always always in a hook grip and you’re going to hold the TRX handles together and push them together as you extend up so the form of the movement is to hold out like this you curl in to the top of your head once you touch the top of your head you press out now the reason we don’t go behind the head or too far out to the side is it puts too much strain on the elbow joint excuse me birds and all you want to be working is just the triceps and yes you might get a bigger range of movement if you go deeper but it’s not worth the strain it puts on the elbow joint and you’ll get just as much benefit from taking it nice and slow on the negative and squeezing at the top and pushing your hands together so get the TRX make sure it’s secure say put it over your shoulders again I always mention this your foot position just depends on how you want to challenge yourself if you go really deep it’s going to be very hard if you go a bit further out it’s gonna be very easy if you’re just beginning with TRX so I’d suggest to just find a midpoint and just play with it and see what fine feels comfortable for you and so proper proper grip with film underneath finally comfortable head forward looking forward bit celiac or 10c caught to keep in this position and you’re going to slowly bend the elbows for one two three to the top of your head and press and squeeze push them together squeeze the triceps and down one two three and press up and squeeze one two three and down one two three and squeeze up one two three and down one two three throw all that my core my stomach my ab muscles are really tense on there to keep me in that position much better than being on a bench where you it’s easy and they’ll support it’s what I love about here Ike’s and again just remember when you at the top squeeze really squeeze that tricep push the hands together and you’ll really feel the triceps triceps work nice and slow on the negative nice and slow yeah all about control TRX is all about control taking your time high lots of reps and just low negative faces that’s how you phases that’s how you get the most benefit out of it thanks for watching if you’ve got any questions or you’re unsure or you want to challenge me on anything any technique please leave a comment and I will answer subscribe to my channel for many more TRX exercises technique plans workouts thanks for watching
