Ring rows seem like such an innocently easy exercise, however, they can be made as hard as you like. The higher you are, the easier it gets and the lower you get the harder it is.

The main focus of this exercise is to keep your torso and hips as straight as possible.

In the starting position below, maintain a neutral head so it is in line with your back. In this case, I am doing so by looking up.

Keeping your elbows close to your side (similar to a reverse push up). Pull in towards the body until the rings touch the side of your chest.

Ways to progress the exercise would be to add a weight vest and to go as low as possible.

Ways to regress include taking the rings higher and moving your feet backward.

Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
