Exercise of The Week: Flower Picking Lunge with a Row

Flower Picking Lunge with Row: Anchor one foot, hold onto the tube and choke up to create a good bit of tension. Hinge forward at the hips creating a straight line from the top of the head to the back heel. The lunge here is shallow and is weighted in the hip/glutes. Once this move is perfected, add in the row with the upper body. Repeat on the opposite leg.

Primary Muscles Used: Gluteus Maximus and Mid-Lower Trapezius/Rhomboids.

Definition of the Gluteus Maximus: the broad, thick, outermost muscle of the buttocks, involved in the rotation and extension of the hip.

Definition of the Trapezius: a broad, flat muscle on each side of the upper and back part of the neck, shoulders, and back, the action of which raises, or rotates, or draws back the shoulders, and pulls the head backward or to one side.
