Extend your arms overhead in a "Y" position—palms forward, tension on TRX, offset feet. Lower your body down, keep your arms extended, and maintain a plank. Pull on the handles, drive your knuckles back, and lift your chest while keeping your eyes on the anchor point.

Frankel says: “Here, your arms go up over your head, allowing you to maintain a rigid spine so that you’re getting that core work as you reach up overhead.

It gives you a big bang for your buck: more muscles are working and integrated into the movement, and everything becomes a core exercise.”
