Advanced Core Exercises with the Trx: Pique Position

There are many different advanced core exercises that utilize the trx, and piques are truly a hard core exercise.

Most people first learn how to do the pique exercise with a stability ball. Both exercises are great and they each challenge your core muscles in a slightly different way.

Since the ball rolls, some people find that it's easier to get into the pique position with the ball. But if you place your toes on the ball at the top of stability ball piques, you may find that there is a serious stability challenge.

Both tools are mobile, but the Trx is even more mobile than a ball. Since the Trx fits in a small back pack, you can take it anywhere, and it's very easy to perform Trx piques outdoors if you find a spot to hang it from.

Below are pictures of the piques with a Trx.

Advanced Core Exercises: Trx Piques

Starting position: Simply start by securing your feet in the trx straps. After securing your feet, place your hands on the floor (or ground), while making sure that your hands are directly underneath your shoulders.

In the starting position your body should be parallel to the floor.

Form: Exhale and use your abs to raise your hips up towards the ceiling. Hold for a brief second at the top and then slowly lower back to the plank position.

Personal Trainer Tips: You may need to practice this exercise a few times to get the hang of it.

If you've done this exercise with a ball, you may find that learning the Trx version is an easy transition.

Always build up your strength with basic exercises before attempting advanced exercises. Regular push ups and regular planks are a great way to strengthen your core and upper body muscles in preparation for Trx piques.


The Trx is one of many tools that can be used to work your core muscles, and you can set it up in your home with the door stop or take it out to the park for an outdoor workout.

If your gym has a trx great, but you don't always need a gym to get a great workout. Get your own Trx and/ or buy a ball and you can work your core anywhere.
