How to do kettlebell renegade row Properly
Step by Step Guide
Begin holding a kettlebell in each hand and assume a high plank position on them. The kettlebells/hands should be directly under the shoulders. Feet should be hip distance apart with the legs straight. Engage your abs to maintain a neutral spine.
While keeping your entire body still and in a straight line, row one elbow up and back momentarily.
Then lower that kettlebell back down to the plank position.
Repeat the row on the other arm.
Repeat for the desired repetitions.
One common mistake is allowing the hips to wobble or rotate. To avoid this squeeze the abs and glutes as hard as you can. This will stabilize the hips and pelvis in neutral to avoid movement there. That way the action can be isolated to the back muscles to perform the row.
