Bent Over Row – Band

Bent Over Row – Band

  • HOW: Start in a standing position, stand on an elastic band and hold the band with each hand. You can adjust the resistance and tension as needed once you begin. Begin the exercise by performing a hip hinge and hold this position. While holding the hinge, perform a bilateral low row by driving your elbows back towards your back pockets and hands to your sides. Repeat
 
  • FEEL: This should feel like a back workout, specifically the muscles around and in between your shoulder blades, behind your shoulders, and even your biceps. Your glutes, hamstrings, and core muscles will be working as well to hold the hip hinge. The exercise gets harder as you pull back further due to the tension on the band.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Do not lose hip hinge position, do not excessively arch your low back. Try to stay still, only move your arms.
