No spam – just thoughtful training advice
The TRX Bicep Curl is the only bicep isolation exercise that is available with the TRX. Thankfully it is a great exercise that can be done by beginners and advanced individuals. That’s because the intensity can be modulated by the positioning of the feet. If you want to make it really challenging, you can even bend the knees and put your chest underneath the fixed point of the TRX.
The TRX Single Arm Row is a unilateral horizontal pulling exercise which is great for improving the strength in the bicep. The TRX single arm row needs to be performed with precision and control to effectively work the bicep muscles, especially the eccentric phase.
The TRX Single Arm Row with Rotation is a slightly different and slightly more challenging variation of the TRX single arm row. It requires more control from the bicep as you open the arms, this can be very effective for improving the strength in the biceps but also the health of the shoulder joints. It needs to be performed with control as it can risk injury in the shoulder if rushed.
