2nd annual TRX Challenge - Week#5

This weeks TRX Challenge involves lots of core strength.  Each movement will challenge your core muscles to keep your body stabilized while performing the exercise.  The challenges become more advanced from this week on and only those who have experience using the TRX and have been strength training for months should attempt to do these.

I have broken the workout up into 2 videos to help demonstrate the exercises.  The only exercise I did not video is a jump rope (I think we all know how to do that).

This week you will perform each exercise for a specific number of reps followed by a short rest (as little as needed) before moving to the next exercise.  Make sure to have warmed up good before starting this challenge.

In the videos only 5 reps were performed per exercise, however, the goal is to do all reps prescribed next to the exercises listed below in the shortest amount of time possible.

1.  1-Leg Squat w/ Hop L  x 25
2.  1-Leg Squat w/ Hop R  x25
3.  1-Leg Mtn Climbers  x20 ea
4.  Triceps Press  x20
5.  Oblique Crunches  x30 (each side counts as a rep)
6.  Jump Rope  x200

1-Leg Squat w. Hop (R/L)
1-Leg Mtn Climber

Triceps Press
Oblique Crunches
