Exercise of the Month: TRX Pike

The TRX Pike is great for toning up your entire core. By having to hold yourself in this position your whole body is working to stabilise the action of the movement, creating such an effective way to burn body fat!

When completed correctly, the TRX Pike can also help to increase mobility in your thoracic spine area and the function and health of your shoulders.

 

Step 1:

Start in a press up position with your feet placed through the lower rings of the TRX. Start the movement with your hips and lower back flat, and your hands directly beneath your shoulders.

Step 2:

Lift your hips into the air while keeping your belly button retracted in order to recruit your abdomen throughout the exercise. Try not to use your feet to help pull you up; you should focus on activating the abdominal muscles to help lift your hips into the air.

Step 3:

Lower your hips back to the starting position, while retaining control of your core.

 

Complete 2-4 sets of 12-15 repetitions each.
