Hamstring

Sit on the floor while facing the wall then, position your heels steadily on the TRX. Use your arms to lift your body up. You have two options to use your arms; it can be   either face forward near or far from the wall. You can choose which one you are comfortable with; the important thing is that you are far away from the wall in order to straighten your legs. In a back and forth motion, try to pull your knees as close as possible to your chest.  Perform this exercise in three of se ts of fifteen to twenty reps.

Rear Fly “T”

Hold the TRX using both as you face the wall.  Hold it as your palm faces one another.  Straighten your back and extend your arms out with your elbows a little bent. Swing your arms back and forth in a controlled gesture. Squeeze the rear of the muscles together as you extend your arms out. By standing near the wall, you can create more resistance and by standing far away minimize the resistance.  Perform the exercise in three sets of fifteen to twenty reps.

Chest Fly

Grab the TRX bands with both hands and face away from the wall. Forwardly lean on   the wall using your elbows somewhat bent as you extend your arms widely.  Maintain straight back   as you push your arms forward to allow them to meet so that they meet in the center. Press the chest muscles as the hands come together. You will not have any problem in controlling the resistance since TRX uses your own bodyweight.    In a controlled gesture, gradually go back into the starting position. Remember not to relax immediately while doing the wide arm stance. It may injure you if you try to move quickly.  .  Gradually go back to the starting as you control the entire motion.  Do this exercise in three sets of fifteen to twenty reps.
