TRX 25 minute HIIT Workout Day 1
Welcome to Day one of the TRX Beginner Program! You can find this program and other TRX training programs in our Elite 1on1 video library with more information at We will be doing the following TRX exercises in this TRX workout video: 1. TRX Press Press of the handles. Keep your hands under your shoulders. You can make this harder by walking your feet away from the anchor point. Remember to come down slow and don't drop into the TRX too fast 2. TRX Floating lunge. Hanging onto both TRX handles, float one leg behind you, keep your arms straight and make sure you keep your weight in the heal. Hang onto the TRX suspension trainer but don’t try to pull yourself up, the TRX is there to help us with our balance and keep us in position not to pull up on in this exercise. 3. TRX Mid row. Hands facing inward towards the body. This is a great exercise to train your back and biceps. If you would like to make this more challenging simply walk your feet towards the anchor point. If you find yourself thrusting your hips forward the angle might be too deep or heavy for you. 4. TRX Bicep curls. Keep your elbows nice and high and shoulder with apart. You can walk your feet towards the anchor point to make this more challenging. 5. TRX Pendulum plank. Both feet in the TRX straps elbows directly under your shoulders. Keep your core nice and tight and let your feet swing side to side. Don’t twist through the hips, push the movement from your shoulders and arms 6. TRX Skull crushers. Keep your hand positioning shoulder with apart and don’t let the handles touch to make this really challenging and to get a good burn in the triceps. Your angle should not be too deep on this exercise as it is very challenging. 7. TRX Squat to rows. We have a mid row and squat together in this exercise. Don’t round your back when you go down. Keep your head up, shoulders nice and proud and away from your ears, with your weight in the heals. You can add a jump at the top of this exercise to make this exercise more athletic and get your heart rate up even higher. 8. TRX high rows. In this pulling exercise on the TRX we will have our palms facing down and pull the TRX towards our upper chest to work those posterior shoulder muscles. 9. TRX Low rows. Now we will have our palms facing up. You will have most of your power here so feel free to walk towards the anchor point to make this rowing exercise challenging to work those back and bicep muscles. 10. TRX Atomic crunch. With both feet in the TRX straps and hands under your shoulders, bring your knees in towards your chest and try to hold them there for a second in between reps to get those abs to burn

Working Remotely Is Not Necessarily Stress-Free

Many believe that working from home or remotely can foster freedom and stress-free job satisfaction, and that everyone wants  more work autonomy. A new study from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, says “Not so fast.” In the study, researchers examined the impact of remote work on employee well-being. Their findings suggest that a variety of factors can undermine or accent the employee benefits of working off-site. Accordingly, researchers developed new strategies to help managers provide remote-work opportunities that are valuable to the employee and the company. “Any organization, regardless of the extent to which people work remotely, needs to consider well-being of their employees as they implement more flexible working practices,” the researchers wrote. The study appears in the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology . In the review, a total of 403 working adults were surveyed for the two studies that made up the research, said lead author Sara Perry, Ph.D. Re

Today’s Popular Music is More Angry, Sad and Less Joyful

Today’s popular music is noticeably different from the popular songs of the 1960s and 1970s. Now a new study reveals that it’s not just the music itself that is different; today’s music consumers seem to prefer songs that express darker emotions in both lyric and tone. The findings, published in the Journal of Popular Music Studies , show that the expression of anger and sadness in popular music has increased gradually over time, while the expression of joy has declined. Using quantitative analytics, researchers from Lawrence Technological University in Michigan studied changes in popular music lyrics throughout the last seven decades, from the 1950s to 2016. Data scientists Kathleen Napier and Dr. Lior Shamir analyzed the lyrics of more than 6,000 songs found on the Billboard Hot 100, a list of the most popular songs of each year. In the past, songs were ranked primarily by record sales, radio broadcasting, and jukebox plays, but in more recent years, popularity is based on several

I Pretend that Fictional Characters Are Real & Talk to Myself as Them

I’ve always loved to play pretend. But now that I’m a teenager, instead of outgrowing it, it’s gotten worse. Now I’ve gotten to the point where it’s an obsession, and I spend more time with my imaginary friends then with real people. I pretend that my favorite characters from movies and TV shows are real, and I talk to myself, both as myself and the character. I have long discussions with myself. I also pretend that they are with me everywhere I go–to the supermarket, to my cousin’s house. I pretend that they’re with me, no matter what I do. Lately, I’ve also been doing something that’s hard to explain: I pretend to be two people (usually myself and my mother, or a cousin, or a made-up person) and have a pretend to have a conversation with them. I pretend that the fiction character is watching me and my mother/cousin/other. Usually, those scenarios involve either a verbal fight, or joking. I’m really concerned because I know this is abnormal and I’m not living a normal life. I’m worri
