The one arm dumbbell row from the pushup position is a great exercise for both the traditional row movement, core stability, and shoulder girdle stability for the arm that's maintaining contact with the floor. Come out in a pushup position while you're holding the dumbbells. You will be in that good plank position with the line from your shoulder to your hip to your ankle. Row by transferring your weight to one arm and bringing that dumbbell up along your side. If we wanted to progress this exercise, introduce a big rotation as the dumbbell comes up. Equally important, control that dumbbell as you bring it back to the floor. Now, if we want to regress this exercise, get down to your knees but keep the hip joint in front of the knee joint. You have to stabilize through your core abdominal low back region as you go through the row.
