THE EXERCISE EVERY ATHLETE MUST DO

Use this variation of the row to strengthen your entire body

We love two-in-one exercises. After all, the best combo moves give you twice the benefit for the same effort. Case in point: the split stance dumbbell row. This exercise not only trains your middle and upper back—as a classic dumbbell row does—it also helps shore up weaknesses in your hips. That’s because the muscles of your hips have to work over time to keep your body stable as you lift the weight. Trust us, you’ll really start to feel this effect in the hip of your front leg as you hit rep number six or seven. And that’s no small thing: The stronger and more stable your hips, the stronger and more athletic your entire body will be. Ready to try it? Watch this video demonstration of the split stance dumbbell row.
