The Equalizer row – one of the toughest strength moves we do at BBB; and one of the best!⠀

First off, let’s talk about the beauty of this move for a sec. This works every single muscle in your upper and lower back. If that wasn’t good enough, it also ties these back muscles into your glutes and hamstrings. What this means is a single move is working your entire posterior chain, all at the same time. Just imagine the positive effect this is having on your strength, stability, and appearance. ⠀

The easiest part of this move is the legs part. Perform a full glute bridge, and you’re set. As you can see in the WRONG section of this video, the glute bridge isn’t being executed properly.⠀

⁣⁣Next, flex your lower back fully, so that your body is forming a straight line from your knees all the way to your chest. Your lower back and legs are now fully flexed, and this won’t be changing for the duration of the move (unless you need a momentary break).⠀

Now comes the hard part, using your arm strength and squeezing your back, to bring your chest up as high as possible. If you’re advanced, you will be able to get in a few good reps of this, all the way up. If you’re new to BBB, you may only be able to elevate your chest a couple of inches. ⠀

Now that you have the form correct, just keep working on it. You will be able to get more reps in, and your chest higher, every time you do this. On a side note, the LeBert Equalizer would be a great tool to invest in for your home gym, so you can practice this move (and many others) at home too. ⠀

Who would ever work out on gym equipment when you have amazing full body moves you can do like the Equalizer Row? You get more muscles hit, more effectively with the moves we do here at BBB.⠀
