The standing row works your back and core. We’ve previously shared a variety using a chair or bench, but in this variation, you’ll support your weight while slightly bending your knees.
-Start by grasping two weights, palms facing your knees.
-Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent.
-Throughout this exercise, make sure to keep your back straight and your core engaged to avoid injury.
-Bend over slightly while maintaining a straight back, and then pull your arms towards your chest. During this movement, also rotate your palms to where they face each other at the top of the movement (see video).
-Return to the starting position and repeat the motion 12-15 times.
-If you need to, start with lighter weights or lower the reps until you’ve gained strength. Do not force the movement to where you compromise your form!
