Hey, my name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister. And today, we're going to talk about how the hamstrings work during a rowing exercise. Rowing to me is one of the best by far cardio conditioning exercises you can do. Not only does it get your heart rate and your blood pressure flowing, but it also is a phenomenal resistance exercise and it transfers to real life. It's a functionally useful exercise. So, we're going to talk today about how the hamstrings are engaged during the row. Now, we know the row is a phen, phenomenal back exercise. So, when we row back, we see the upper body engaged, but the key is the explosive movement from the lower body sets everything in motion. So, before you get the upper body engaged, we have to fire off the blotch, the legs and the hamstrings engaged. Then, we pull back with the upper body. Again, we push back, and then we row. We squeeze in so that engagement for the hamstrings is during the explosive push off. Boom! Hamstrings are engaged and then we're back to center. Pushing off and we're back to center. My name is Jay Jones, Certified Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister and that is how the hamstrings engage during a rowing exercise.
