Check Your Health: Isometric rows right at your desk

Isometric RowsThumbnail

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.
