🔥Chest Supported Dumbbell Rows🔥
This is a great exercise to build up your back and increase pulling strength, all you need is an incline bench and some dumbbells. The problem I find is it’s hard for most people to actually feel their lats working, most of the time they only feel arms or upper back so I made this video to help those who struggle with lat engagement for this exercise!
1️⃣Lay face down on an incline bench with dumbbells or KB’s in each hand, try to lock down your entire body and focus on only moving your shoulder, elbow and some slight extension at the spine as you go through the row.
2️⃣Start by bringing the dumbbells slightly in front of your shoulder to get a stretch on the lats, as you bring them back think about driving your shoulder and elbow down to your hip keeping forearms vertical while having a lose grip on the DB’s.
3️⃣ As you reach the end position think about flexing your lats and bringing your elbows behind your back rather than straight up to the ceiling, come back down in a controlled manner then repeat.
4️⃣For breathing you want to breath in as you come up and breath out as you come down but for heavier sets you can hold your breath and brace at the bottom then breath out on the way down.
