    Renegade row/renegade row pushups question

    I've never actually been able to do the Big Back workout the way it's listed in the instructions because of the first exercise- the Renegade Row pushups. As far as I can tell, renegade row pushups and to a lesser degree plain renegade rows assume that you're resting your hands on the bar of your barbell rather than the floor. The adjustable barbells I use don't stay still long enough for me to feel safe doing this, even when I have a proper rubber mat on the floor, and frankly, using hex dumbbells results in more hand pain than anything thanks to the width of the central bar versus the pressure from my own weight. Is it possible/acceptable to place the barbells just inside my hand position, do a standard push-up, and pick up one of the dumbbells for a renegade row instead of trying to balance myself on those things? (My plain renegade rows have involved something similar, just without the push-up part.)

    I was thinking that what you just described is a perfect modification for what I experience, as well: the hand pain with hex barred dumbells. I say we go for it!!😎💪🏼

      My barbells have round plates so I do renegade rows exactly as you described them

        I've found that placing a folded up blanket under the dumbbells works for me. You just need to fold it up thick enough that the dumbbells can sink into it slightly.

          I have round DBs, too.The last time I did renegade rows, I tried to place hands slightly below shoulder width and my feet , it more outside. That was good for stability. I also used padded gloves. That way, I cursed a lot less...
