The @trxtraining Superman is a high level core exercise as long as you avoid common mistakes. One common mistake is letting the arms cheat to beyond a wide Y position towards a T position. This is will put unwanted stress on the shoulder joint and surrounding structures. The key here is to bring the arms up into a tight Y position - just outside shoulder-width. Keep the core engaged and avoid any arch or hanging on the low back. Shoot for 2-4 sets of 3 repetitions each with a 5-15 second hold. You can work up to the holds by doing repetitions without holds.
