HOW TO DO A RENEGADE ROW
Follow our steps to do a renegade row correctly:
Start off by grabbing a pair of dumbbells and getting into your starting position, essentially positioning yourself in a press up with a dumbbell in each hand.
Make sure your arms run directly down from your shoulders and that your feet are about shoulder-width apart.
When you’re ready, lift one of your weights up to your body and towards your rib cage, keeping the dumbbell close to you and your elbow pointing upwards.
As you do this, focus on keeping your body still to avoid twisting your torso.
Lower your arm back down to the ground, and repeat on the opposite side.
And there you have it. You just completed the perfect renegade row. You can either repeat these with the same arm for your entire set, or alternate for every rep – it’s up to you!
