Designed by TRX Master Trainer Jonathan Ross, this new challenge is advanced and requires many characteristics of fitness to be present all at once. It requires strength, stability, balance, power, coordination and endurance.
Success in fitness is found in developing the various parts of fitness without allowing anyone to dominate to the exclusion of others. This challenge does just that by asking for challenging exercises to be performed with rapid transitions and all exercises requiring full body stability with localized strength and power.
Set up for the TRX 10/10/10 Challenge:
TRX Suspension Trainer Exercises (all in single handle mode):
"Intense" TRX Inverted Shoulder Press
This is a challenging frontal plane upper body exercise requiring a combination of shoulder stability, mobility and strength. It is critical to differentiate this movement from a chest press by performing a “vertical push” motion like an overhead dumbbell press.
"Extreme" TRX Leg Extension
Ross created this variation of a TRX Leg Extension to bring even more challenge to the quadriceps muscle for mobility and to the upper body and torso for stability. By having the feet significantly higher than the head, the leg extension must be performed “uphill” and thus the term “extreme”.
"Explosive" TRX Elevated Lunge
This is a classic TRX exercise performed with power, balance and coordination.
