Fitness Tip: TRX Sprinter Starts

Fitness Tip: TRX Sprinter Starts

The TRX was originally created from parachute straps by a Navy Seal named Randy Hedrick, for the purpose of staying in peak condition with limited training space.
The TRX Sprinter Starts is a combination cardio and functional strength move emphasizing the quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteal muscles and core.
1. To begin, adjust the TRX straps long so that the bottom of the strap is about 3” from the floor.
2. Turn away from the anchor point, hold the handles in front of the body with palms facing each other and place the straps under the arms.
3. Start off in a standard plank moving feet further towards the anchor point of the TRX.
Level one: Bend one knee as you bring the other foot back towards the anchor point and then return to the starting position with both legs straight.
Level two: Bend one knee and start with the other leg back towards the anchor point. Then drive the front foot into the floor as you bring the back knee up in front of the body and return to the starting position.
Level three: Bend one knee and start with the other leg back towards the anchor point. Then drive the front foot into the floor as you bring the back knee up and hop on the front foot. Then return to the starting position. (Note: The higher the knee, the more ab strengthening).
4. Switch legs after exhaustion and repeat.
