The Best Way To Do The Renegade Row If You Have Lower Back Pain

The Renegade Row back exercise can be seen as a pretty risky exercise especially if you are dealing with a low back sensitivity. 

Let me show you how to do the exercise a better way. 

You see, the majority of people using the renegade row back exercise in their workouts are not doing them the right way. This typically is because of the environment the exercise is being used. 

Unfortunately this exercise is used far too often in CrossFit, group training or boot camp style classes which can often times lead the user to going to hard to fast.

In this video, I am going to break down the Renegade Row back exercise and show you the best way to do it even with a sensitive low back. 

What Muscles Does The Renegade Row Work?

The renegade row back exercise is predominantly an overall back developer but also hits some should endurance and core endurance at the same time.

One of my number one reasons for liking this exercise is because it’s really good at building global stability around the spine.

So yes, it’s an awesome back and shoulder exercise but it also is a great core stability exercise as well. 

Why Are Renegade Rows So Hard?

The renegade row is so hard mainly due to the demand it puts on the body. 

For starters you are having to stabilize and hold up the upper body with the arms and shoulders being in the straight arm plank position. 

From there you’re rowing the dumbbell one side at a time which is hitting the overall back as well as the core since you are now having to stabilize the entire body from rotating. 

At the end of the day there is a lot going on with the renegade row so they should be hard. The key is not letting the difficulty of the exercise create issues or breaks in your form.
