Alternating Sumo Rows
One of our favorite horizontal pulling movement is the Alt. Sumo Rows. It presents a very functional movement pattern that we do in daily life when bending over and pushing/pulling something from the ground.
This exercise of course builds the mid back and arms, but it also isometrically works the pressing muscles of the arm pushing the kettlebell through the ground while the other pulls. Additionally, it is a great trunk exercise by stabilizing that rotational force. And, because you’re in a sumo stance, of course your lower body is having to work as well, making this, like most kettlebell exercises, a total body exercise.
Watch Coach Brandon and give it a shot! Keep your back flat, chest up, and don’t shrug while you pull.
