TRX®, Jungle Gym XT®, among others are a popular exercise tool in many fitness studios throughout the world. They’re light, portable, and can deliver one heck of a full body workout. One of the most common and useful exercises used with suspension equipment is the row. Done correctly this movement can enhance arm and back strength. Unfortunately, few trainers feel the need to correct several common errors while performing the row. If you’re a trainer, or trainee, see if you make one or both of these common mistakes when performing a suspension row:

Common Mistakes

  1. Head rolling forward
  2. Shoulders disengaged

Avoid a painful neck and build up your biceps, lats, and rhomboids by keeping your head and shoulders pulled back. Keep a steady tempo of pulling up by 2 seconds and lowering by 2 seconds. The more tension the greater the muscle growth.
