Total Body Row

December 20th, 2010 No Comments

Instead of sitting down to do a row, stand in a squat position to work both your lower and upper body at the same time.

The Set Up:

  • Put the cable on the lowest spot and use a long bar as a handle.  We prefer the bent bar.
  • Use a light amount of weight so you can perfect your form first.
  • Stand away from the cable connection, with your feet hip’s distance apart.

The Movement:

  1. Squat down as low as you can.  Engage your core. You won’t move from here.
  2. Relax your shoulders. Arch your back.
  3. With your hands in an underhand grip, pull back and squeeze your shoulder blades.
  4. Hold for 3 counts and release slowly.
  5. Repeat 12-15 times.

You’ll be working your back, quads, and gluts!

Remember to keep the weight in your heels. Shoulders relaxed.  Abs engaged.
