The TRX Suspension Trainer is designed by former Navy Seal Randy Hetrick. He developed it out of necessity, as he and his teammates needed an effective way to workout no matter where they were stationed. It is now used by everyone from busy people who want to train at home and on the road to professional athletes and celebrity trainers.
You can do over 300 body weight exercises with the TRX Suspension Trainer. What makes doing these exercises with the TRX great is that your body is forced to work harder throughout the movement because of the way the device suspends your body. One exercise, the Atomic Push Up is described and demonstrated in the in this article.
The Atomic Push Up is a variation of the normal push-up that also includes an knee-in or tuck movement. Doing it properly trains your chest, triceps, shoulders, and abdominal muscles. Below are a few tips to keep in mind when you perform Atomic Push Ups
- Keep you back flat and legs extended just like you would when doing regular push ups.
- Looking forward throughout the exercise can help ensure your back stays flat.
- When doing the knee-in portion of the exercise make sure to keep your upper body parallel to the ground.
- Avoid arching your butt into to air during the knee in movement. Focus on pulling your legs in with your abdominal muscles.
- When learning the movement you can do the push up portion of the movement from your knees.
- You can make Atomic Push Ups more challenging by clapping between push ups, wearing a weighted vest, and altering your hand position.
