August Kyle House Fitness Moves of the Week

Kyle House Fitness Move of the Week August 16th: Banded Single Arm Row

This week’s Full Body HIIPfit Move Of The Week (MOTW) is brought to you by instructors Kyle and Melo! For your exercise enjoyment, we give you the Banded Single Arm Row. For this movement you will need a band, a bench, and a smile on your face! This movement is a combination of a single arm row, with a staggered squat. Here are a few benefits of the Banded Single Arm Row and why it makes us look and feel good: 

  • Activates your glutes and legs during the squat movement.
  • Engages your core and balance. 
  • Builds lean muscle in your back with the rowing action. 

How to perform the Banded Single Arm Row:

  • Start in a standing position on the bench. Left foot forward, right foot back in a split stance. Both handles are in your right hand. 
  • Sink into a staggered squat, at the bottom of the squat row the band up and squeeze your back. Staying in your squat for all the repetitions on this side. 
  • Switch your stance in your legs, and switch handles to the opposite hand and repeat. 
  • Another option is to come into your squat, row your handles up, and then come back up to stand instead of holding the squat the whole time. 
  • Repeat 8-10 times on each side.

How to perform the Rolling Side Plank:

  • Roll yourself forward and as you come forward plant your hands on the floor and send your feet back into a plank position with feet on either sides of the bench. 
  • Roll yourself back on the bench and repeat. 
  • Option two is to roll into your plank and bring your feet to the top of the bench ending a plank position.
