The new gym is centered around result-driven total body workouts.
Liz’ ‘Renegade Row with Pushup’ move requires the use of dumb bells. Liz says this exercise is a favorite, for myriad reasons.
“I love this exercise because it is a total body exercise that works to stabilize the core while building upper body strength. It can be used as a single exercise in a workout or incorporated into a circuit,” she explains. “One of the key benefits of this exercise is its ability to strengthen the body in proper postural alignment.”
RENEGADE ROW WITH PUSHUP MOVE DESCRIPTION:
- Start in plank position with dumbbells in hand.
- Keeping your core tight row the dumbbell up without twisting your torso.
- Return the dumbbell to the ground and repeat on the other side.
- Once both rows are completed lower your body down and complete a pushup keeping your elbows tucked in.
