In this training video Kyle Brayer explains how to perform a Chest Press with the TRX Suspension trainer from the gym at West 6th Tempe. The TRX Chest Press focuses on the chest, triceps, and shoulders while increasing core stability. The TRX Chest Press is a great beginner movement with the TRX that can easily be intensified for experienced clients.
The keys on this movement are:
- High anchor point
- Tension the TRX
- Keep core engaged
- Good inline posture through the head, back, hips, and legs
- Adjust foot placement to reach desired rep range
- Handles stay high enough to keep straps off the shoulders
As with most TRX movements, this exercise can be easily adjusted for different levels of physical fitness by moving the angle from the anchor point. During a TRX Chest Press, the most advance standard movement is to have the handles directly under the anchor point.
