Exercises which involve multiple compound exercises and work 2 major muscle
groups simultaneously are terrific for those interested in weight loss.
Perhaps the most natural and effective of these exercises is the squat and row.
In order for the resistance band or tube squat and row to be effective you must
have enough resistance. To get the most out of tube squat and row you should
have a heavy set of
adjustable resistance bands.
The resistance bands can be set up at a feet or up to waist level for
this exercise. Adjusting the resistance will ultimately depend on how far
you are away from where the resistance band is anchored. Since the band will
be constantly pulling at you, you can use them as a counter balance with
your outstretched arms as you do the squat. This counter balance actually
allows most people to use better squat form by getting the hips back and
going to a parallel position.
Although you can perform the tube squat and row 3 primary ways the best
way to perform it is to perform a full squat with outstretched arms and as
you reach the top of the squat and squeeze your glutes, perform the row and
slowly let your arms to return to the outstretched position as you go
through the downward phase of the squat.
