Dumbbell Bent Over Row
Dumbbell Bent Over Rows is an intermediate level upper body exercise. The most important part of this exercise is making sure you have a straight, flat back. This exercise is heavily dependent on your core therefore posture is key. With a dumbbell in each hand tilt your upper torso forward, flexing at the waist, not the back. As you tilt forward, keep your chin and head up as well as bend your knees to free up your hamstrings. This will allow you to drop lower and keep your back flat. The closer you can get your back to be parallel to the floor the better but start off at an angle that you are comfortable with while maintaining proper form. Once in the proper position with your back flat, rotate your wrists so that your palms are facing out. Bring the dumbbells up to your abdomen and make sure to keep the dumbbells outside of your body. Make sure to breath out as your bring the dumbbells up. If you are using heavier dumbbells the inside half may touch the sides of your torso. Once you get to the top of the range of motion slower return back to the start position.
