Stand-on-the-Band Stiff Arm Bent Over Row
I’ve tweaked this classic dumbbell row to accommodate more resistance for home training routines. I’m not saying that I’m first to think of it, but I’m definitely the coolest, 😀
WHO SHOULD USE THIS EXERCISE?
Anyone can use this exercise at any level of your fitness journey. As I mentioned, it is great for home training, but there is no reason why I can’t also be used in the gum.
This is a cool lil’ hack for goblet squats! If you’re training at home with minimal equipment and find it difficult to increase your resistance when squatting, then here’s a nifty way around it.
If you’ve been training for at least a few months at least and have advance past the functional stage, then this is for you.
Back at you with some ankle stretches & drills to improve your function ability.
Poor flexibility of the ankle can thwart your gains from squats, so it’s an issue that should be addressed, especially if you are new to training. Squatting deep engages glutes, which are probably the most important core muscles. Yes, they are a part of the legs group, but they are also the base of the core, because of the way that they support the pelvis and lower back. Knee problems are 90% of the time either foot, or hip (glutes) related. These drills will help improve, not only, your ankle mobility, but also your overall bio-mechanics from the bottom up.
