TRX Upper Body Workout

With this 15-minute workout from celebrity fitness expert Jay Cardiello and TRX, you can build a bigger, tougher, and more defined upper body. Often the hardest thing of your workout is just having time to do it. That’s why we created this time-saving upper-body workout to help you get the stomach, arms, and back you’ve always wanted in the amount of time you have.

Perform each exercise for 60 seconds, then rest for 30 seconds before moving on to the next. For a total of 15 minutes, repeat the entire sequence two times. If you want to learn more, go here to see the rest of our 15-Minute Fitness sequence.

Chest Press with TRX

Stand with your hands outstretched in front of you, facing away from the anchor point. Brace your heart and concentrate on keeping a strong plank. Reduce your chest to your hands and concentrate on shifting your whole body in a plank position. When your hands are in line with your chest, come to a halt. Press yourself back up in one slow balanced movement, concentrate on keeping your elbows, hips and shoulders in line the whole way up.

Holding onto the handles, stand facing the anchor point and lean back, keeping the straps taut. Using your back muscles, row your body up until your hands are on the sides of your chest. Brace your heart and move your whole body in a single, controlled motion.

Hold the handles out in front of you as you face the TRX Suspension Trainer with your feet facing forward, hip-width apart. As if you were doing a plank while standing up, brace your heart and engage your glutes and hamstrings. Push your knees out and drop your hips down and back. Return to a standing plank by driving your hips forward. Row yourself up using your back and arm muscles until your hands are on the sides of your chest. In one long, synchronised step, return to the starting point.

Biceps Curl with TRX

Set your TRX Suspension Trainer to mid-length and stand with your elbows bent just above your shoulders, facing the anchor point. Align your pinkies with your temples and walk your feet toward the anchor point until your biceps are slightly taut. Maintain plank by lowering yourself until your arms are completely extended. Bring your pinkies back to your temples, elbows high, and eyes on the anchor point to pull your body toward the anchor point.

With your palms facing away from your body, place your hands next to your temples. Maintain stress in your entire body by bracing your heart. Press down on the handle until your arms are completely extended, holding everything stable but your elbow joint. Slowly and steadily lower your body until your hands are back in the starting place.
