2nd annual TRX Challenge - Week #6

This week I'm stepping up the intensity and including the medicine ball along with some more advanced
TRX exercises.  One of my favorite exercises, med ball slams, is incorporated into this week's Challenge to turn up the intensity.  Once again, upper body and core strength will be pushed to the limit in a short period of time.  We're working mostly shoulders, chest, triceps, and core muscles.

If you have been competing in each weeks' Challenges, keep it up and enjoy.  You should notice how your fitness level has improved over the weeks as well as balance and coordination.

Before beginning this week's Challenge, make sure to properly warm up for 10-15 min. trying to involve as many muscles as possible.  You want your muscles to have lots of elasticity in them, and you also want your body temperature to be warm when starting.  Cold, stiff muscles can results in injury.

This week's workout challenges you to complete each exercise for 30 seconds trying to get in as many total reps as possible.  Make sure to keep good form throughout the exercises but try to push yourself as hard as you can.   (note that in the video I am only performing 5 reps per exercises, not the full 30 sec as in the Challenge)

Don't forget to post your RESULTS in the Comments section below.
