TRX Overhead Back Extension


Beginner

Grip the handles and extend the straightened arms overhead, palms facing forward. Tension on the TRX. Your right foot should be firmly planted; your left foot place slightly offset back, toes down, heels lifted.

Keeping your legs and back straight, “hinge” at the hips and push your hips down and to the rear. As your body lowers, let your head drop between your arms and shift some weight into your rear foot.

Inhale and press your right foot in to the ground. Squeeze your core and glutes and drive your hips back with your arms, keeping them straight and overhead.

Intermediate and Advanced

Grip the handles and extend the straightened arms overhead, palms facing forward, tension on the TRX; feet together.

Slowly lower your hips down and back, drop your head between your arms, toes up, keep your back and legs straight. Drive your arms up pulling on the handles, extending hips.

After you have mastered the intermediate progression, the advanced progression is achieved by moving more slowly with brief isometric holds at the start and midpoint or merely moving the feet closer to the anchor point. Sometimes simple is just as challenging.
