Lunge Row with Tube-Low

by Anthony Carey, MA

Description

The unilateral lunge row with tubing low is a great exercise to get to the posterior oblique system of the body. Start with the tubing anchored low right to target your right glute up to the left lat. Start in hip flexion, knee flexion, and torso flexion, which loads up the glute and the extensors of the back. And as you pull back, it's important that the lunge occurs in the right leg prior to the arm moving to help create some stabilization through the lower back and the SI joint. Your hand slightly turns on the way down as you promote your forearm, and then goes back and brings the tubing right underneath your armpit. If you want to progress this exercise, increase the tempo of the movement where you'll need to reach to the elasticity in the tubing and be able to eccentrically control the pull back that the tubing is providing against your body.
