TRX Chest Press

To perform this exercise correctly see the video and description below.  For more information on the set-up and use of the TRX see our TRX tips page.

  1. Set-up the TRX with the handles at about waist height.
  2. Position the feet approximately underneath the TRX anchor point. To create more difficulty position the feet behind the anchor point at your desired distance.
  3. Grab the TRX handles with a horizontal overhand grip.
  4. Straighten the arms out and lean into the TRX so the handles are straight out from the chest.
  5. Bend the arms with the elbows as the hinge point until the elbows align straight out from the shoulders and the arms are at a 90-degree angle.
  6. Push the arms straight to return to the start position.
  7. While doing the chest press be sure to keep the abs and glutes contracted so that the body stays in a straight line while performing the exercise.
