Tim's list of benefits for the Single Arm Twisting Row

  • Torso rotation exercises primarily work out your oblique muscle group, which can add power to rotational motion. Athletes in certain sports, such as shot put or golf, may benefit as the exercises improve the strength of their swing. Additionally, stronger abdominal and back muscles take more pressure off the spine.
  • This exercise is a must do if you are trying to move better or feel better.
  • The single arm twisting row works your whole body in one movement, not something that happens very often.
  • Because you do each arm separately, you develop both sides of your body evenly.
  • When you twist properly during this exercise you help strengthen and loosen up your lower back, decreasing pain and reducing the risk of future pain.
