The core bag deadlift to row is a great combo exercise that will challenge your strength and muscular endurance. As you can tell for the name, this exercise combines the core bag deadlift with the row action, a compound movement for increased exercise performance.
- The core bag deadlift to row is a great combo exercise that will challenge your strength and muscular endurance.
- It combines a bent-over row with a (hanging) deadlift
- During the exercise, the bag does not touch the ground, and will also challenge your grip strength.
- Stand with feet hip-width apart, holding the bag. Ensure the core is engaged and the shoulders set.
- Push the butt backwards and hinge at the hips – keeping the torso straight and the shoulders set – until the bag is lowered to just below the knees. Keep the core engaged as you pull the bag towards the hip crease.
- Maintaining body control, lower the bag back to the knees and drive the hips forwards to return to standing.
- Repeat for time or reps.
- The combination of two strength exercises into one exercise can be a great way to increase strength, muscular endurance and aerobic capacity. This will be useful during workouts/circuits where you want maximum intensity over short durations. For a truly intense workout, try combining the exercise with other combo movements, such as burpees.
- The muscles along the back of the body (also known as the posterior chain) are essential for postural health. These muscles can be thought of as ‘anti-gravity’ muscles, and their strength and stability are crucial for upright posture. Exercises such as the deadlift to row will work the entire posterior chain in a functionally effective way and can help train proper hip extension and pulling.
- Because this is a combo movement, it’s essential not to select hefty weights. As a starting point, choose a weight that will allow you to perform six reps with good form. Build up the reps to 10, then add a little more weight. For an aerobic boost, stick with lower weights and go for high reps (20+) with proper technique.
