Can't make it to the gym? Squeeze in some exercise at work. Dr. Brett McIff from the Utah Department of Health shows us how isometric rows can be a quick and effective workout right from your desk.
- Sitting upright on the edge of your chair, grasp your other hand (thumb up on one hand, thumb down on the other).
- Pulling against each other, try to pull your elbows behind you.
- Hold that position for about 30 seconds, pulling as hard as you can.
- Finish the movement by slowly releasing the hands, pulling the elbows behind you, and holding for 20-30 seconds.
