EOW – Stability Ball Rows

Stability Ball Rows to strengthen your back and core

Strengthen your back muscles and work your core at the same time by changing up the stand row to a 1 arm row leaning on a stability ball. This is a client favorite because of the core activation, it’s tough but it makes you feel strong and balanced. You can make it more challenging by placing one hand and one knee on the stability ball. Always use good exercise technique & form and listen to your body – if something doesn’t feel right – it’s probably not.

Stability Ball Rows – Do it right
