TRX Back Row

The TRX Back Row is a great exercise for developing the muscles of the upper back.  Since you are in a plank position and supporting your bodyweight, you are also working your core and other stabilizer muscles.  One of the biggest advantages of the TRX Back Row is that you can do it anywhere so long as you have the TRX straps with you.

TRX Back Row Instructions

  • Anchor the TRX suspension trainer just above head level.
  1. Grab the handles with an neutral grip, straiten your arms and walk back until the TRX is tight.
  2. Take a couple steps forward so your body is leaning at 30-45 degrees.  The farther back you lean, the more difficult the exercise will be.
  3. While keeping your stomach tight and back strait pull so the handles finish just outside your chest.
  4. Keep your elbows in tight to your sides and imagine pulling with your elbows.
  5. Then slowly extend your arms back out in front of you.
  6. Repeat.
