Below are six must-do TRX exercises that will sculpt every muscle.

1. Sprinters Start

  1. Facing away from the pivot point, take the straps in both hands.
  2. Hold the straps under your arms and move forward until the straps are taut.
  3. Move one foot forward in a lunge-like position, with the opposite heel flat to the ground.
  4. Kneel down in a lunge position, and then push forward, using the strength of your forward leg, allowing your opposite foot to come up towards your rear.
  5. You will then allow yourself to fall back into position and start the process all over again.

2. Chest Press

  1. Once again face away from the pivot point and lean in towards the straps, as if you’re about to do a push-up, with your arms fully extended.
  2. You will then essentially do push-ups, pushing your body in towards your arms and returning back to the original position.

3. Plank

  1. This routine requires you to get into position by putting your feet in the foot straps and having your knees flat on the ground.
  2. Press your body upward into the planking position and hold for about 30 seconds.
  3. Then you will repeat the process.

4. Single-Leg Squat

  1. With straps in hand, put one foot down on the ground and raise the other one out in front of you.
  2. Push down into a squat position with your grounded foot and hold for a few seconds.
  3. Then, using your grounded foot again, push back up, using the straps for balance.

5. Bicep Curl

  1. This time you will face the pivot point with your feet together.
  2. Grab a strap in each hand and twist your wrists so that your palms are facing you.
  3. You will then begin to pull yourself up and lower yourself down.

6. Knee Tuck

  1. This one starts with your body in a plank position, with your arms fully extended and palms flat on the ground.
  2. Bring both knees into your chest and return to original starting position.
