The bent over row is an easy exercise which strengthens your upper back and shoulder muscles. It’s the perfect antidote to hours spent hunched over the computer. The row can be done with weights, but this example shows how to do a row with a resistance band.
How to do a resistance band row:
Take a step forward and place one foot on your band. Bend both knees slightly and, keeping your back straight, bend forwards from your hips (don’t be tempted to hunch forward or arch your back). Keeping your elbows in, pull the band handles towards the sides of your chest/upper ribs, squeezing your shoulder blades together. Lower the handles and repeat the pulling motion. Aiming for about 10 to 12 repetitions, 2 to 3 times, will give you a great upper back workout.
Rows – so easy, you can do them anywhere!
