Alternating Kettlebell Bentover Row Exercise Summary

The Alternating Kettlebell Bentover Row Exercise will help build a strong upper back and core. Even though you will be bracing yourself with your free hand the strength needed to avoid rotating will help increase core strength as you row.

Alternating Kettlebell Bentover Row Steps

Step 1: Set up a pair of kettlebells next to each other

Step 2: Hinging at your hips and bending at your knees slightly get down to position to grab onto the bells

Step 3: While maintaining a long spine drive your free arm into one bell while rowing the other

Step 4: Pull your elbow back towards your hip as you pull tensing your lats and keeping your forearm vertical

Step 5: Lower the bell with control and repeat on the other side

Tips and Safety: Maintain core tension throughout the movement to maintain spine stabilization and safety. Keep a proud chest as if trying to point it forward to the front of the room. This will help you avoid rounding at the shoulders and upper back.
