The kettlebell row increases strength throughout the back, biceps, and shoulders. This exercise also improves stability in the core and lower back.
Stand in a staggered stance with your knees slightly bent, holding a kettlebell just above your front foot in your opposite arm. Lean forward with your back straight and head up. Rest your free arm on your front leg for stability.
Pull the kettlebell to the side of your torso, making sure that your elbow is tucked close to your side. Pause, and lower the kettlebell to the starting position.
At the top of the row, do not let your shoulder slouch. Be sure to bring your shoulder blade back.
Be sure to finish the movement by pulling the kettlebell handle all the way to your ribs.
Don't let your back round or body lose alignment. Be mindful of proper posture.
