TRX Fallout – Complete Video Tutorial and Exercise Guide

TRX fallout
The TRX fallout is another great suspension exercise to add to your routine. Also known as suspension fallouts, ab fallouts, and strap fallouts, it's also one of the better exercises for strengthening your core.

The TRX Fallout is a lot like using an ab wheel. It's a fantastic move to add to any routine, as are almost any TRX exercises. It takes the entire body to maintain balance through most TRX lifts, which is one of the reasons they're so great for building core strength.

    • Step 1: Adjust the straps so the handles hang below your waist.
    • Step 2: Grasp the handles and lean into the straps as if you were going to do a push-up.
    • Step 3: Keeping your arms straight, lean into the suspension, and raise your arms up and over your head.
    • Step 4: Maintain a neutral spine and keep the rest of your body straight, shoulders should be the only joints that move.
    • Step 5: Pause momentarily during the peak of the exercise, then slowly return to the starting position.

The key to the fallout is to keep your core engaged throughout the entire exercise. Don't let your butt glide out or saddle in to make the lift easier. It's important to use the body's micro-adjustments to work your core and all muscle groups.

Variations of the TRX Fallout

One of the more difficult variations of the TRX Fallout is the TRX Anti-Extension Fallout. To perform this move, adjust the straps of the suspension system so that the handles hover around 6-12 inches above the ground. Grasp the handles and adjust your feet until you are in an elevated push-up position. Then swing the handles outward, in-front and above you, engaging your core and maintaining a neutral spine throughout the entire lift.

Exercises like the fallout are highly adaptable. Modify the position of the straps and the position of your feet to adjust the intensity of your workout. Just remember to keep your core engaged and use your muscles to perform the lifts (not momentum or locked joints).
