How to Do Dumbbell Row - part of the women's fitness video series by GeoBeats.
Hi, my name is Linda. I'm with Fitness 19. I'm going to be showing you how to do a dumbbell row. You want to have your leg bent like a 90 degree angle. On the bench, one leg on the ground, slightly bent. You're going to bring your arm all the way down, bring it all the way up. Elbows are in tight, squeeze, so you feel in the upper back. You're also working your bicep anytime that you're doing a pull motion. You want to take it straight down. You're going to try to do 2 sets of 12 repetitions. Hopefully each set will be a little bit heavier than the other. That will help you build some muscle. So after you've rowed one side, you're going to switch and take it over. Put your knee up here, the other leg slightly bent, arm down. You're going to pull straight up, get that squeeze in the upper back. Take it down, pull it up. Here we go. Here you're going to work your biceps as well if you are, your upper back. And as you pull your weight up, you also want to make sure that you have a flat back. You don't want it to be a rounded back like that, you want to keep it flat. You don't want any rounds in the back. And that's how you do the dumbbell row.
