Bent Over Dumbbell Row

from Jodi Scott Trevizo

Standing slightly bent over at the waist, with slightly bent knees, start with your hands about 6 inches above your knees, and lift the dumbbells up towards your armpits, keeping your wrists straight, squeezing the shoulder blades together. Lower your arms, staying in the bent over position, and repeat. To support your back, brace/flex/contract your abs. Think of your "belly button trying to touch your spine".
Helpful tips and Tricks
Make sure you do not bend your wrists at the top of the movement, as this puts unnecessary strain on your wrists.
Why it works
Rows target many muscle groups in the arms and upper back. The more muscles worked, the more calories burned!
