Carie Ham: We are back for workout number eight in our series and our second workout with the TRX and this week we’re going to step it up a notch and make our workouts a little bit tougher than what we did last week. So are you ready for this Julieanna? Julieanna Hever: Yeah I've saved up energy. Carie Ham: How did you feel after the last workout? Julieanna Hever: I felt great, I felt taller and stronger, I loved it. I really did. It’s great. They tell me to do it again. Carie Ham: Very good. So we’re going to be taking you again through five exercises, doing 10 repetitions of each exercise and I know we have some comments from people asking, how do I—where can I put it? You know we have done another video a month back on that exact thing, showing you all the different places that you could take your TRX and hang it in different places you can anchor it to. So feel free to check back in our videos and it will be archived in there and you guys can check out how to use your TRX. But until then, let’s get started with our workout. Our first exercise in this series is going to be a TRX side lunge, important feet, good posture and good alignment, with your knee pointing straight forward. So let’s give it a shot Julieanna, take a side lunge and step through knee, straightforward over the toe, alternating legs, coming to the middle, very good. Very good, you feel tension on those straps, you want to feel like you're leaning back, you want to keep your body nice and vertical but there will be some tension. [Demonstration] Our next exercise is a pushup with our feet in the strap. Last week we did our hands in the strap, this week we’re going to move to our feet in the strap, it’s a little more challenging so let’s give it a try. So now Julieanna get set up here because I'm—but it is fine to do on your own, you can get your own setup, it’s fine. Okay abs tight through the middle and graduate your good tight point position, shift the weight where your shoulders are right on top of your hands and push up. It’s important to make that little queue because the anchor position, it will pull you naturally back away. So you need to make sure you keep your weight on top of your hand as you're performing the pushup, nice and tight as you push up through here, doing 10 good repetitions. You can see Julieanna is working harder. Good. [Demonstration] Last one. And exercise number three is going to be a reverse lunge using the TRX, so elbow tucked right in my side, step back lunging and alternating legs. Again you want to set up far enough and you're getting that good, nice alignment, the front knees, down to the ankle. [Demonstration] Our fourth exercise is the great exercise for core training and it’s going to be a TRX tucks and we need it for Julieanna’s feet strapped just to make it simple as you can drop her hands down, so we started our pushup, you're going to come up into a good hold and we’re going to draw the hips up as you tuck the knees in, good and out. Exhale and your finish point is right here, keeping everything pulled in tight, recruiting the ab muscles nice and tight, finish right here, good. [Demonstration] Our last exercise can be a better weather exercise, it’s called letter T with the TRX and for this one again, we want to start and—so that ensures that everything is where we need it to be. So, you want to bring her arms forward and lay back shoulders down, just like we’re doing on our first one. Exhale, really working the muscles with the back and shoulder and we’re going to do 10 repetitions. [Demonstration] So we’ve just finished our workout, another great workout that you can do with that you can do with the TRX, move through in circuit training format, I know that Julieanna thought it was tough, what do you think? Julieanna Hever: I feel it challenging, tough that I thought like I got a full body workout. I loved it. Carie Ham: And you should have found that this workout was more challenging than the first one we did.
