This week's Building Block is a TRX workout - 5-exercise workout using suspension training


TRX Balance Lunge

Start standing in the squat position holding the handles at chest height. Raise your right knee in front of you to form a 90 degree angle with the hip. Keeping your chest up, squat down on the left leg, while swinging your right leg in a half-moon motion behind you. Keep your right foot from touching the ground behind you. Pause. Return the right leg to raised starting point in front of you. Repeat for all prescribed reps on the right leg before switching to the left leg. This is a great exercise to use as a warmup or as a replacement leg exercise while travelling. For young athletes, this is a good progression after learning the TRX Squat, and progressing to single leg stability and mobility work.
