BENT-OVER ROW

Work your arms, shoulders and back with this simple addition to your workout. This is also a great strengthening exercise for your back and shoulders.

DO IT

Grab a barbell that’s not too easy to lift, but not too heavy that you can’t complete the workout

Hold the barbell standing with your knees slightly bent or one leg in front of the other (whatever is comfortable)

Lean forward from your hips so you have a near flat back. DO NOT ARCH OR CURVE YOUR BACK

Exntend your arms towards the floor

Pull the bar in a straight line from below your knees to your stomach

Squeeze your shoulder blades together as you row the bar up

Hold this for 2-3 seconds and lower

Do 8 – 10 reps for 5 sets

ADD MORE TO THE WORKOUT

To get more from this workout engage your core and keep your feet together. This will really test your stability and work on strengthening that core.
