Attach a TRX to a high anchor and lengthen the straps. Stand underneath the anchor point, facing the TRX. Grab both handles with palms facing your body and extend your arms in front of you. Now take one or two steps forward.
As the TRX becomes taught, raise the handles toward eye level, keeping your palms facing the floor and arms extended. Raise the handles until your arms are about parallel to the floor. Lean into the straps so your extended arms and the TRX straps are supporting your body weight.
Before beginning the movement make sure that your body is flat, core is tight, and shoulders are down. Initiate the movement by breaking at your elbows and letting your body travel towards the floor. Your hands should be moving towards your head, but your elbows should stay still and close to each other.
Once your hands get close to your head reverse the motion by contracting your triceps and pressing your hands away from your face. Make sure to keep the elbows in place, body flat, and core tight the entire time. Keep pressing until your arms are fully extended once again.
To adjust the difficulty, change the distance between your feet and the anchor point. The closer your feet are to the anchor point, the more difficult the exercise will be. The further away your feet are from the anchor point, the easier the movement will be.
Maintain proper form always. Pause at the start, and repeat for given reps.
