Hi all,

I'm translating a website. Do you have any idea of the parts I underlined?

Congrats to this year's TRX 40/40 challenge winners, many tried but only handful completed the challenge: Jason Smith, Darren Kamuischer, Antonio Strevay, Chad Benedict and Zahi Nahaon. Way to go guys! We also had a few people attempt our new TRX Rip Training 40/40/40 challenge (40 seconds of Punches on R, 40 seconds rest, 40 seconds of Punches on L). There were not any winners but those that came close, took home a free TRX T-shirt. Also let's hear it for Kjetil Loyning, from The Alaska Club East; he won a free TRX Suspension Trainer™ in our booth raffle drawing. Check out a few of our TRX 40/40 Challenge winners below.

Thank you,

Here's a video on [url=http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150169085602176 ] TRX[/url] training. I think you can figure out what punching left and right means. You've got other mistakes:

Thank you for the reply and the video.

I'd already check the vid but couldn't figure it out. Too many things are going on it. So my best guess is, "punchs on

R" is swings from the right side?

Sorry, I have to surreder..
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
R and L are probably right and left, as Mr. M. has already said.

If the video didn't help, try Google. Here's one way to do it:

If the word "punch" is bothering you, note that it's 'to strike with a forward thrust of the fist'.

Thank you, I'll check it out!

Sorry, again,

I still cannot figure it out. Punch is not bothering me. You made it clear, their punches are the same of ours, the Japanese, though we say, panch.

What bothering me is, "on." Prepositions are ambiguous to me when I can't guess it from contents. Does "on right" mean with his right hand, or onto the target or something in front of his right side?

Thank you,
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
You take prepositions too much too heart. There natural use is more important than their meaning. The person training just punches with his right hand and with his left hand; since he has a stick in his hand the direction of the punch is pretty much determined, but even if it weren't, you need to use some common sense when deciding (if it is even important) exactly which direction the punches go in.
mitsuwao23Does "on right" mean with his right hand, or onto the target or something in front of his right side?
Not knowing anything about this TRX thing, I'd assume it meant "with the right hand".

I can't help you more than that. Your original post is the only thing on the internet with the phrase "punches on R", so I don't see the website you're translating at all.

Is this "exercise machine" real or virtual? Does this "challenge" exercise your body or your brain/reaction time?

If there's some on-screen representation of the punch, involving "R" and "L," it could mean something like "click on R; click on L."

Edit.Okay, sorry. I read the web articles. Emotion: embarrassed
