Get the Body of Your Dreams: Rowing Move

Rowers have strong backs—and you can, too. Paul Rassam, head womens lightweight crew coach at Princeton University, uses this move with his team. Lie on your stomach with arms by your sides, palms facing up, feet together. Looking straight ahead, lift chest, arms, and legs a few inches off the ground. Hold 30 seconds; slowly lower back down. Rest, then repeat. Start with 1 30-second interval, gradually building up to 3 30-second intervals.
