Exercise of the Month: TRX BODY-ROW

Learn a new exercise each month with our Iditarod Fitness coaches! This month, we are using the TRX Suspension System for some bodyweight training. // Personal Trainer, Vince, shares the following cues to master the TRX Bodyweight Row: // 1. Grab the handles in a neutral grip and then find a comfortable angle to place your heels, leaning back with arms extended. The lower your body is (and the more forward your feet are), the more weight you will be pulling up. Choose an angle in which you can perform 6-8 reps. // 2. Brace your core and squeeze your glutes to maintain a neutral position. // 3. When ready to pull, start with palms facing down. As you pull up, rotate your hands and squeeze your shoulder blades at the top of the movement. // 4. Slowly and in control, lower yourself down to starting position. Then repeat!


The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race (the most popular sporting event in Alaska) is an annual and grueling long-distance sled dog race run, which only the hardiest souls undertake, covering over 1,000 miles of snow and ice.Mushers and a team of 16 dogs cover the distance in 9–15 days or more.  Teams frequently race through blizzards causing whiteout conditions, sub-zero temperatures and gale-force winds which can cause the wind chill to reach −100 °F (−73 °C).   The trail is through a harsh landscape of tundra and spruce forests, over hills and mountain passes, and across rivers.
