Kettlebell Plank Row
The kettlebell plank row takes the familiar position of a push-up and combines it with a traditional row exercise. The primary muscle group that benefits from this kettlebell exercise are the back muscles. While it may look difficult at first glance, it is perfectly suited for both beginners and experts.
As mentioned, you’ll be starting off in a push-up position. The kettlebell should lay directly beneath your chest as your body is elevated from the full extension of your arms. Rotate your body slightly to one side so that your weight is shifted to allow support with one hand. Take your free hand and lift the bell so that your elbow is raised as much as possible. Finally, place the kettlebell back on the floor at the center of your chest. This will complete a rep. You’ll then rotate to the other side and repeat the exercise, alternating between reps.
The recommended number of reps for a set performing the kettlebell plank row is 12. 1 to 2 sets should be done during a kettlebell workout session, depending on how comfortable you are performing them.
