The Renegade Row

Who names these exercises anyway? I don't know about the "renegade" part, but I do know this one will light fire to your abs and core. First, I'd recommend using hex dumbbells. Don't use round ones because you may roll and face plant! And that's totally not required here!


The wider your foot stance is, the easier it will be so adjust as needed.

Don't be tempted to fly through this one. You'll surely end up twisting and turning and receiving very little benefit. I want you to think about controlling and bracing those abs, hips and shoulders with as little side to side movement as possible.


Hips and shoulders should stay square to the ground while alternating the row and you'll see me point out what common mistakes look like in the video.

Aim for 8 to 12 reps per side. And if you want to make it extra spicy, add a push up in the middle if you are already doing this from the ground.


If you do find this hard to control, try a lighter weight OR raise to an elevation as I'll show you. You'll get far more out of this exercise if you brace HARD with little movement.

Check out the video below and I'd love to hear how it goes for you!
