Bent Over Row

Move Targets: Upper Back and Triceps


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and hinge the hips so the upper body leans forward. Keep your back straight, and extend the dumbbells straight down from shoulders.

Step 2: Without rocking, row the weights back toward the body until they reach your sides. Elbows will point directly behind you. Squeeze your shoulder blades together and open the chest. With control, release the row to the starting position. You want to keep the dumbbells as close to the thighs as possible instead of holding them away from your body.
