Move of the Month - Renegade Row

Pick your dumbbell weight desired for a one arm row and place the dumbbells on the ground with your palms facing each other.  Focus on maintaining the perfect plank position.  Take your feet a little wider than shoulder width apart.  Perform the push-up by lowering your chest so arms find a 90 degree angle and exhale as you extend back up. To prepare for the one arm row draw the shoulder blade upwards, keep the elbow touching the side of your body as you lift the weight.  Bring the elbow up towards the sky.  Return to the plank position and perform another push-up.  Then row on your other side.  Continue to alternate your right and left side with a push-up in between.  Remember to keep your hips parallel with the floor by engaging your core to avoid rotating the hips.  The renegade is a great chest, back, and core exercise that will improve your stability, balance, and strength.
