Hey-hey guys! It’s been a while since we did a TRX Thursday here. Let’s do it!
Today I wanted to introduce you to a new TRX class format I came up with – Two Round Body Blast.
So it is a body blast but instead of having 3 rounds (upper body, lower body, core) it has two rounds (upper body and lower body) each ending with 2 core focused exercises.
Two Round Body Blast TRX® Workout – Lucy
The warm up for this one is pretty standard with a few variations due to the workout focus being mostly on upper body and lower body.
The main part of the workout consists of 2 rounds each ending with 2 core exercises and a 1 minute rest.
Cool down – standard stretching and cool down exercises.
So a few things I wanted to focus on here that are part of this workout.
TRX Abducted Side Lunge with a medicine ball is something similar to what’s shown in the video below:
Almost but not quite. Here’s what we did:
With your left foot in both cradles and your left side to the anchor point, move away enough to get into side lunge position. Have the MB just outside of your right foot. Bend your right knee taking your hips back and down, pick up the MB and take it up and to the left straightening the right leg at the same time. Bend the right knee taking hips back and down and put the ball back just outside of your right foot. Repeat for 45 seconds, then switch sides.
Things to focus on here: make sure the bending knee stays behind toes, and the leg in the cradles moves straight away from your body, not to the back or front.
Inverted Row: I love-love-love inverted row. It just makes the class participants feel SO good when they’re able to complete those. Make sure they work their way up to this exercise though – low row is always a good place to be.
Here’s a video from TRX website – the Inverted Row is the second exercise demonstrated in it.
So that’s that, you guys.
