Suspended Pushup

Suspended pushups are a more advanced version of the traditional pushup that strengthens the chest, shoulders, and triceps. Performing the exercise from the suspended position more actively engages the core throughout the range of motion.

    Attach the TRX securely to a bar. Grab the handles with an overhand grip and set yourself up in pushup position so that your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles.

    Keeping your core tight, slowly lower yourself towards the floor. Keep your elbows tucked closely by your sides so they make a 45-degree angle with your torso. Pause, then push back up to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Keep your core tight and back flat throughout the movement.
  • Pause at the bottom for one second and then press your body back up.
  • Do not let the elbows flare out. Keep the elbows close to your sides throughout.
