RECLINE ROW  By Adam Brush – Performance coach at IHP and creator of FiveToolBaseball.blogspot.com

One of my favorite exercises that strengthens the posterior chain musculature, responsible to decelerate the arm during a throw, is the RECLINE ROW.


This exercise creates back strength, shoulder stability, core stiffness, and even grip strength (when modalities such as ropes are incorporated) all of which are important to the baseball player. In addition, maintaining proper body alignment requires the ability to isometrically sustain hip extension along with glute activation which encourages lengthening of the hip flexors which is important for creating healthy hamstrings.

Stay Strong!
