April is here and so is our next round of Try it Out Tuesdays that’s all about rotational movements. We’re starting it off with the TRX® Resisted Rotation to target your obliques to really strengthen the core before summer! It also is a great way to prevent injury by developing muscles that support and protect the spine.

 

Once you have the movement down and you’re rotating like a boss, challenge yourself to doing as many reps as possible in 60 seconds. You’ll be surprised how strong you are!

 

Let’s get started:

  1. Adjust the straps to mid-length position and stand sideways.
  2. Start with offset feet. With the foot closest to the anchor point forward, grab the handle with the outside hand and cover with the inside hand. Pull your arms into your chest.
  3. Rotate your body toward the anchor point. Slowly lower your body by extending your arms, maintaining a stiff core and a lengthened spine.
  4. Rotate your body upright with your arms extended to return.
