Muscles targeted: Quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, chest (pectorals), deltoids, triceps

Equipment: TRX Suspension Trainer (difficulty depends on distance from base)

Hook the TRX Suspension Trainer overhead about 7 to 9 feet off the ground. Set the handles/straps about 12 to 16 inches from the floor.

Place one foot in both straps. Drop down into push-up position, with one foot in the straps, and one foot on the floor, and complete one push-up.

Stand back up, while keeping foot in the handles/straps, and jump. Repeat.

Note: For added difficulty, raise opposite foot (not in the handles/straps). For less difficulty, drop into push-up position without doing the actual push-up.
