Start Position - Staggered-Stance Diagonal Row

Finish Position - Staggered-Stance Diagonal Row

Staggered-Stance Diagonal Row This movement imitates exactly the sort of real-life kinetic soup that exploits some miniscule yet consequential hole in your dynamic repertoire. (In other words, it prevents you from throwing out your back while, say, pulling up a tent stake.) Stand with your legs spread two to three feet apart with light dumbbells in each hand. Rotate your torso to the left, bend your left knee 90 degrees, and extend your right arm to bring your right hand outside your left foot, palm inward. Stand up while "rowing" the weight back to your opposite side. Do two to three sets of ten to 12 repetitions on each side.
