The row is one of the most fundamental strength training exercises out there, critical for growing the back muscle that your body needs. It also strengthens something else, too: Your biceps.

Called the Band Row-to-Curl Countup, it’ll blast both bodyparts, and hit your abs more than you may think, too.
