Step by Step Guide
Begin standing with the feet hip distance apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand with a neutral grip (palms facing each other).
Hinge the torso forward to 45-degrees with the arms straight and a slight bend in the knees.
Row the dumbbells back and up as you squeeze the shoulder blades together.
Pause for a moment at the top before lowering the dumbbells back down to the start position.
Repeat for the desired repetitions.
A common mistake is contracting only the arm muscles and not the back muscles. Instead of simply pulling the arm up and back, focus on contracting your lats - the big back muscle. Squeeze the armpit, pull the dumbbell up and back in an arc motion, and pull the shoulder blade back.
