Latissimus Dorsi Stretch

Why? Loosens inflexible latissimus dorsi muscles, which can often cause imbalances.

How? Grip the cradle with one hand, your arm straight ahead at shoulder height. With your feet shoulder-width apart, draw in your stomach, keep your arm at shoulder height, and squat down and back up.

It's great to see an article on the TRX.

Unfortunately this article doesn't do it justice - it is far more than a piece of equipment for recovery after injury! I use it regularly to train with and I am stronger and fitter than I have ever been. I also use it with clients who vary in abilities from complete beginner (I mean complete beginner as in not exercised for many years) to advanced users, the possibilities are so vast!

Just check out some of the video clips on youtube to see for yourself what an amazing workout you can have with a TRX - Oh and one of the things I love most about it is that you can workout outdoors!!!
