Bent Over Row

This Video is part of the Performance Plus Strengthening Series. The Row is a good exercise to promote strength and control of the Shoulders, Pelvis and Trunk and is useful in all aspects of hitting and throwing.  Its a great all round exercises as it works all the muscles in the area. Commence standing in an athletic position, in a stride position. Stand hinged over at the waist holding a weight (plyoball or kettle) in one hand. Keeping your back aligned, slide your shoulder blades back and down towards your backside. Pull the dumbbell upwards towards the side of your rib cage. Lower the weights back to the starting position. Complete the set on one side before repeating with the opposite arm.  As with all the strengthening exercises try and maintain trunk and head control as you perform the exercises. Best done as 3 x6 reps.
