This week’s work out includes the use of a TRX suspension system, or you can use gymnastics rings.  You need some kind of suspension for rows or ring rows, where you hold on to the grips and pull your body up to the grips/handles/rings.  It’s always a bonus to add a second pause at the top of the pull.  Try it for yourself!

Complete as many repetitions in 15 minutes of:

  • 10 air squats (or with support with suspension system)
  • 5 push ups
  • 10 air squats
  • 5 rows with suspension system

Then, I burned my core by doing a million of these flows.  The full expression starts whole body on the floor and you pull yourself to a pike from your hands.  This was my first time trying these out and guess what?? They. Are. HARD.

I scaled these to an eccentric motion, starting from the pike (shown above) and pushing backwards.  I scaled even further by coming to my forearms first, and then trying to hold my plank and core position as I pushed back.

Holy core.  These burned.

If you need more help, I posted a video on my Instagram.
