Towel Rows

Towel rows involve using a towel draped over a sturdy elevated object such as a door frame, table, or tree limb. You grasp each end of the towel and perform the rowing movement. This is a great exercise for two main reasons. First, towels are quite common and there are many places throughout the inside of the house and outside where you can drape one and do rows. This allows you to do rows without a need for any added equipment. Second, they are fantastic for grip strength. You must grip the towel hard enough that you do not slip off the towel and fall on the floor. This is important because grip strength is one of the most accurate indicators of health and vitality in older adults.

As with any row, the more upright your body, the easier the exercise is. The closer your body is to horizontal, the more difficult.
