Exercise Video of the Week: TRX Pike

syattfitnesslogo

 

In this Exercise Video of the Week I introduce a great movement, not only for overall core strength and development, but also for shoulder health and function: The TRX Pike.

TRX Pike

This Move Will…

– Improve core stability in both anti-extension as well as anti-rotation

– Improve Serratus Anterior function which may lead to increased shoulder health

The Serratus Anterior functions to protract and upwardly rotate the scapulae.

– Improve T-Spine mobility specifically in extension

– Improve scapular upward rotation

Recommendations

– Perform the TRX Pike near the tail-end of your lower body strength training sessions

– They’re a great addition to any super-set, circuit, or even as a standalone drill

– Appropriate sets and repetitions range from anywhere between 2-4 sets of 6-20 repetitions depending on individual needs, goals, and level of experience

I hope you enjoyed the video and, as always, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions you can leave them in the comments section below.

Never Minimal. Never Maximal. Always Optimal.
