Exercises You Should Be Doing: TRX Busdriver
While the world is currently at a standstill over the Royal Wedding pukefest coverage, I for one have stayed true to my word, and haven’t watched one single second of it. And, despite their efforts to the contrary – I wouldn’t let any of the women in this morning’s womens group talk about it, because frankly, I didn’t want my sperm count dropping.
Nevertheless, I’m going to keep this one short today unfortunately, because I’m in scramble mode trying to find another apartment. I’ve spent the past few days on Craigslist searching for apartments for my girlfriend and I, and I’ve been meeting with realtors all week trying to find a place that doesn’t smell like wet dog. It’s getting somewhat comical, though, because this will be the seventh year in a row that I’ve moved. Thankfully, I travel light, and all I have to pack are my books, a couch, my tv, and a vintage Star Wars poster.
Anyhoo, lets get to the meat and potatoes.
What Is It: TRX Busdriver (or, for something less lame, you can call it the TRX Kid-n-Play: as a tribute to the early 90’s dance masters, Kid-n-Play, ohhhhh, ohhhhh, ohhhhhh). If you don’t get the reference, then shame on you.
Who Did I Steal It From: strength coach and guy who can kick my ass with both hands tied behind his back, Dewey Nielsen
What Does It Do: While this is a fantastic exercise to work core stability, what’s often left un-noticed is the fact that this is also a superb way to train ANTI-EXTENSION as well. So, in a sense, you kill two birds with one stone here.
Key Coaching Cues: Making sure not to hyperextend the lumbar spine, simply move the TRX (or blast straps for that matter) from shoulder to shoulder maintaining as little movement as possible in the hips and pelvic area. Another point to consider, is to make sure that you squeeze your glutes the entire time, and to recognize that the narrower your stance is, the harder the exercise will be.
You can do this for time, but I prefer something along the lines of 2-3 sets of 6-8 repetitions PER SIDE.
Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
