The 2 TRX Tricep Exercises To Add To Your Home Workouts

TRX Kneeling Tricep Extensions are a perfect entry point for a beginner looking to work their triceps with a TRX. It will allow you to feel out the movement without putting too much pressure on the elbows or triceps. Although it is for beginners, the position of the knee can be altered to make it more challenging, making it a great exercise for intermediate level individuals also. The key to success for this exercise is control and working on the mind muscle connection.

TRX Fall Out Extensions (triceps) is extremely similar to the kneeling tricep extension however it is just done in a standing position, making it much more challenging. When attempting this exercise, make sure you start with the feet under the fixed point of the TRX just to get a feel for the difficulty, putting your bodyweight into your triceps can be very challenging. As with the kneeling TRX tricep extension, make sure you work on maintaining a mind muscle connection. If you’re a very advanced individual then consider adding a pause when the triceps are fully stretched and or adding a tempo to the eccentric phase of the movement, these two will allow you to add progressive difficulty to an already challenging exercise.
