We’re talking pure, uninhabited strength! You want it, I want it, we all want it.
I’m commonly ask “what’s the best exercises to get stronger”. Which is irrelevant question, what works for one does not work for all.
That said, I do have a my favorites that have helped me become stronger through the years.
I’m not talking about our traditional lifts, Bench Press, Back Squat, Deadlift. Or even the advance lifts, Snatch, Clean and Jerk.
More so what exercise are the best accessory work, or some call auxiliary work, to help develop a sound, solid, STRONG base for strength.
The Single Arm Row.
One of the easiest, purist, bang for your buck exercises you can do in the gym.
Single Arm Rows (one arm rows) help us build stronger lats and rhomboids, In turn allows us to push, pull, and squat more weight.
This is however an exercise EVERYONE seems to do different. THAT DOES NOT MAKE THEM WRONG!
Different variations of the exercises and different placement allow us to work different muscle groups, allow stronger emphasis and focus on our weaknesses.
If its not something you currently add to your training, I would strongly suggest doing so.
