Like almost everyone else I know, I was pretty glued to the Olympics last week. There’s nothing more inspiring than witnessing others who have worked and trained so hard going after their dreams. I was especially surprised how excited I was while watching the rowing competitions. I love the aspect of teamwork, the graceful movements of the oars and how beautiful the boats look gliding across the water.
Watching these athletes perform inspired me to mix things up when it came to my own performance. I asked my trainer Erica Hood from Body By Simone if she would come up with a workout inspired by rowing for our next training session. Erica delivered an short and simple move that I’m so excited to share with you!
This exercise works your upper body, back, lats and core, and all you need is a good set of Resistance Bands and you’re ready to go!
