2nd Annual TRX Challenge - #2

This week's Challenge involves several exercises that most of you will be familiar with, with the exception of 1 or 2.  Nothing too challenging again this week, but some may find performing 20 reps for each exercise a little daunting.  I strategically placed the most challenging exercises at the beginning and at the end.

As with all of my Challenges, I encourage you to make sure to get in a good warm up, consisting of some cardio activity as well as some movement prep exercises.  The entire workout should only take around 3-5 minutes, so the longer the warm up the better to make sure your muscles are prepared.  If you are using the Challenge as a primer prior to your normal workout, 10-15 minutes should be sufficient.

The goal for this week is to complete 20 reps for each exercise (in order),with good form, in the shortest time possible.  Here is a video demonstrating the exercises to help you better understand how to properly do each one.

 Dave Forbes was kind enough to demo the exercises for me.

TRX Push Ups
TRX Low Row
TRX Kneeling Rollouts
TRX Superman's
TRX Triceps Press
