Virtual Fitness: TRX Rows

TRX Rows

The TRX Row is a strength training exercise that strengthens the upper back and arms.

INSTRUCTIONS: Determine the pull angle. The lower you are to the floor, the harder it will be to pull yourself up. Your body should make a straight line from crown of your head to the feet. Draw shoulder blades back. Keep the spine long. Feet are about hip width or slightly wider. Bend elbows as you slowly pull your weight forward until your elbows are in line with your shoulders. Release to start position while keeping shoulder blades retracted. Aim for slow, steady, controlled movement.

ERRORS: Looking up. Rounding the shoulders and back as you straighten your elbows. Yanking the handles and arching your back as you pull forward. Moving too fast. Lifting shoulders. These errors usually indicate that you’re leaning too far back in the start position.

EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider
