So, let’s get straight to the point: sometimes we are running short on time and in need of something that gets all the key areas. Not all of us have endless hours to train every day.
So, let me welcome you to the TRX house of pain! All you need are some suspension straps and the setup goes as follows [[Please note, this is an advanced workout! If you are unable to do pushups or planks from the floor, I suggest mastering that first!]]:
Five exercises at 1:00 each and a :15 rest as you transition to the next. You will end on one final minute push doing single leg burpees (no pushup) in the strap. I never program burpees, nor am I a fan of them for most people, but doing them in the TRX provides a great way to work on hip extension, single leg stability and power. Not to mention it puts your heart to the test, so by the end of that minute you will remember this full body blast.

The workout goes like this:
*Minute/Exercise 1: TRX Push Up – Knee Tucks
– Start off with 1 tuck, 1 push Up. Then add one rep to each until the minute is up.
*Minute/Exercise 2: Circle Planks
– 1 clockwise, 1 counter. Then add one rep to each until the minute is up.
*Minute/Exercise 3: Side to Side Pendulum Tuck – Push Up
– Do 1 pendulum tuck then 1 push up. Then add one rep to each until the minute is up.
*Minute/Exercise 4: Pike to Body Saw
– Do 1 pike, then 1 body saw. Add one rep to each until the minute is up.
*Minute/Exercise 5: Mountain Climber – Push Up
– Start with 1 mountain climber each side, then 1 push up. Then add one rep to each until the minute is up.
Then for the final minute keep one foot in, and get as many burpees as you can on one leg, switching half way through!
Give it a go and try to get better each week! This workout can do so much from giving you a full body session to helping with shoulder stability and strength. Also, what isn’t there to love about adding a metabolic effect?
This one truly will burn, test your mental fortitude, and give you a feeling like you did indeed workout for 2 hours!
If you need to scale and increase your rest to :30 you also can and each week look to lower it with keeping good form.
