As a professional physique competitor and trainer, I rely on resistance training to build and shape my clients’ physiques. I use the TRX suspension trainer often as a warmup and/or finisher. During our Quarantine time, I’ve used my suspension trainer more often than usual in my workouts. This upper body and core workout was really challenging! I did 3-4 sets of each exercise with rep ranges varying from 8-12.
Building width and depth in my back is a priority in my training. I started with pulls in a variety of angles to target different areas of my back.
- Pull ups – upper back and lats
- Inverted pull-up neutral grip – mid back
- Inverted pull-up reverse grip – lower lats
- Reverse fly – rear delts and upper back
Next, I moved to pushing movements and arms
- Chest press – chest and front delts
- Triceps extension
- Biceps curl
- Y- raises – mid and rear shoulders
Finally, these core exercises required not only core stabilization but shoulders and arms as well!
- Plank to pushup
- Pike ups
- Tuck ups
- Oblique crunch
- Mountain climber
