So I’ve recently started the kettlebell journey (really enjoying it!) and I have a question about the form in the kettlebell rows. I have questions regarding two aspects.
Is it important the kettlebell touches the ground each time you do a rep? The video seems to indicate yes, but that’s not historically how I’ve done rows, and when I’m in a row position I have to twist my body and bend over further to be able to put the kettlebell on the floor - it just doesn’t seem like great form to be putting it down each time.
Can I use a chair to support my row instead of putting my hand on my knee (so with one knee and hand on the chair as in a dumbbell row with a bench)? Doing it the way that’s indicated on the app video basically means I’m continuously in a squat whilst doing the row and I end up tiring out in my quads way before I start to get tired in my arms. I’ve been using a chair so far as that way I actually can focus on strengthening my arms, but I wanted to check this was okay to do.
