If you have been working with your TRX for a while now and feel like taking it up a notch then try out these few exercises. They work your whole body and the thing I love most about using the TRX is that it completely engages your core in most movements. Please don’t attempt these, if you are new to using a TRX, as you do need to have some level of strength and proficiency using a TRX to perform these exercises properly.

Pistol Squat
