TRX CHEST PRESS WITH ONE LEG OFF THE FLOOR – 10 REPS (5 EACH FOOT)

Start with positioning yourself on the TRX (or whatever suspension straps you are using), the closer you stand to the anchor of the TRX the more easy the exercise will be, so when you are ready, remember to challenge yourself and stand further back from the anchor.

Balance on one foot, hands shoulder width apart and arms straight, go down as if you were about to perform a push up.

Make sure as you press downwards the TRX band does not touch your arms at any time. Push back up and repeat for desired amount of reps.

DOUBLE ARM SWINGS KB – 10 REPS

Start by picking up the KB using two hands with back straight and legs bent, pull the KB backwards through your legs and use your hips/legs/glutes to bring the KB back through to shoulder height (make sure you don’t go higher than shoulder height).

Also make sure you use your hips for the momentum and don’t try to muscle up the KB.
