Renegade rows are becoming more popular and for good reason. It’s a multi-joint movement that works big and small muscles alike. It is challenging and can bring a much needed variety into any classic workout routine. Whether you are training by splits or a full body program you can benefit from renegade rows, which will only add to your back or ab workouts. But there are more good reasons to do renegade rows.
Why Do Renegade Rows
Renegade rows don’t only work your back, shoulders, and core. They also require the work of your glutes and leg mucles to keep you in a plank position and allow you to perform the exercise without falling or sagging.
Renegade rows can help you stregthen your wrist grip for those heavy deadlifts. When you train in a low rep range (1-5) your dumbbells get pretty heavy so as an additional bonus your grip gets better.
This is a high intensity exercise for the whole body. You work your back, triceps, biceps, glutes, and legs and it all requires good balance from you, so it’s great for every goal and can be included into a any program if you want to increase intensity of your workout. Work your way up to heavy renegade rows in order to avoid shoulder injury and a burning pain in your entire ribcage and abs.
