What does the lawn mower exercise work? The lawnmower pull is a multi-joint functional exercise performed in a diagonal pattern replicating many movements in sport. The exercise incorporates the transfer of force from your lower body through your trunk to your upper body. It activates your trapezius and serratus anterior muscles at low to moderate levels.
Are lawnmowers a good exercise? Lawn mowing is basically sled-pushing
“If you dig deep and push hard, you can get similar benefits as a sled push—high intensity and low impact cardio. Plus, you’ll be working your back, glutes, hips, core, hamstrings, triceps, shoulders—you name it!”
What is the lawnmower exercise called? Dumbbell rows are also known as “lawn mowers” because perfect form looks like you’re starting a lawn mower. The key to the lift is forming a “tripod of strength” using your legs and off-hand. This exercise is popular in workouts for men, because a nice, V-shape looks very masculine.
What muscles do lawn mowers target? The shoulders (“deltoids”), specifically the front portion, add backup to the other groups by flexing the arm forward onto the bar of the mower. The legs, made up of the quadriceps on the front and hamstrings on the back, help the gluteals (essentially your “butt muscles”) move the mower over terrain.
