How To Perform the Dumbbell Row

  1. Start by standing with feet shoulder-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing your body.
  2. Bend your knees slightly and hinge at the hips, keeping your back straight and head in line with your spine.
  3. Let the dumbbells hang at arms length, directly below your shoulders.
  4. Pull the dumbbells towards your ribcage, squeezing your shoulder blades together at the top of the movement.
  5. Lower the dumbbells back to the starting position in a controlled manner.
  6. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions, ensuring you breathe out as you lift and in as you lower.
