💥THE DUMBBELL ROW💥
☝️The best thing about the dumbbell row, aside from increasing your sex appeal by 927%, is it's one of the best ways to strengthen your upper back, improve your posture, and increase core strength. Issue is, Argus Filch tried teaching everyone the "right" technique but he's a squib and completely butchered it. So in this video I outline what you should and shouldn't do to get the most out of your rows.
👀Regardless of what Filch told you...
❌Do NOT round your back
❌Do NOT pull so far that your elbow goes way past your torso
❌Do NOT let the front of your shoulder roll forward.
👏Instead, you want to make sure you...
✅Keep your chest tall and back flat. Think about having good posture.
✅When you row, your elbow should stop right in-line with your torso. To help with this, think about rowing with your shoulder blades, not pulling with your hand.
✅Take a video and make sure the front of your shoulder isn't rolling forward. If it is, odds are you're pulling too far with the elbow and/or rounding your back.
📝As for programming, you can row...
➡️5-12 reps per arm.
🦄Worth noting, some people are going to ask, "why not let the elbow go further back? That's how you strengthen the lats." Truth is, the lats function to, first, adduct the humerus then extend it. You can 100% recruit the lats without bringing it that far back (and putting your anterior shoulder at risk). Not to mention, there are plenty of other exercises that recruit the lats even better without nearly as much risk (i.e. straight arm pull downs).
🙏❤ I hope this helped and if you have any questions feel free to drop em below.
