Trainer Heeson’s Move of the Month
The TRX Knee to Chest challenges your balance, stability and core strength, which is exactly what Trainer Heeson wants! It is a great core and abdominal exercise that requires some upper body strength. By pulling the knees towards your body the hip flexors are put to work when you pull your knees in toward your body.
Here’s how to get it done safely. Put your feet in to the TRX straps, and lift your knees up off the floor to assume a push-up position. Make sure your hands are directly under your shoulders. Keep your core tight and your spine neutral. This is your starting position! Next, pull your knees towards your chest, being careful not to lower your hips. Extend your legs and return to that starting position, as shown above by Trainer Heeson. Once you’ve mastered this, there are some fun variations to try, like single leg tucks.
