Section 5, Lesson 4
DB Bent Over Rows
Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, also at shoulder-width, with your palms facing each other. Bend over at a 45-degree angle (no lower) and take a deep breath in.
- Pull the dumbbells straight up, toward the sides of your chest, on an exhale. Take the upper arms no higher than parallel with the shoulders (slightly lower than the shoulders is fine). While lifting, keep the wrists from moving as much as possible.
- Lower the weights in a controlled manner to the starting position as you inhale. Remain bent over until all repetitions are complete.
