Dumbbell Pullover

The seated row is a great exercise for you back, it works the largest muscle in the back called the latissimus dorsi. The other names that you might heard people call them are “Lats” or “Wings”, The Lats are usually used any time that you pull something example:  when you open a car door or  fridge door you usually use this muscle.

First, select the appropriate dumbbell and set it near the edge of a weight bench. Position your upper back (shoulder blades) on the bench. Reach over, grasp the dumbbell, and hold it over your head with an overlapping hand grip. Next, keep your arms locked into position, and lower the dumbbell straight back until it is parallel to the floor. Return to the starting point. Repeat the movement as needed.

IMPORTANT: Your elbows can be slightly bent, but they must remain locked into position during the pullover. The goal is to try to minimize activity of the triceps. Be sure to keep your chest high at all times.
