Complete Fitness personal trainer Travis Hackett recommends adding the TRX pike to your workout to strengthen your core and add variety. Travis says his clients love it for that very reason. “The TRX pike is a challenging full body move that tests a person’s core.” Like any exercise, you’ll benefit the most and stay injury free by doing it correctly and safely.
Put your feet into the foot cradles directly under the anchor. Point your toes, lie on your stomach, place your hands shoulder-width apart, and face fingers forward. Keep your torso, glutes, and thighs engaged, and keep your feet together. Straighten your elbows and don’t allow your back to sag. Pull your legs toward your chest until your hips are directly over your shoulders. Do not allow your spine to arch or bow. Inhale and slowly as you lower your body back to a plank position.
