How to Do Single Leg Rows
Per Bernal

Standing on inflatable balls is an expensive way to train your core. But you can get an even better (and cheaper) workout with one-legged exercises or lifts using one arm at a time. Doing conventional lifts without the stability that comes from working both limbs together taxes your core to keep you balanced. The single-leg row doubles the challenge: one arm works while you’re standing on only one leg.
