1. Held Lunge Row
Start with your right foot in the center of your towel. Bend down into a lunge, so that both of your legs are at 90 degree angles. Grasp the ends of the towel in each hand and allow your torso to hinge forward from the waist. From this position, pull the towel up toward your chest as hard as you can, driving your elbows back, engaging your core, and squeezing your shoulder blades together. Hold this position for 20 seconds. Release, and switch legs. Hold for another 20 seconds. Repeat that sequence a total of 4 times.
