Reverse Grip Bent Over Dumbbell Row Instructions

  1. Select the appropriate dumbbells and place them on the floor in front of you.
  2. Bending at the knees and keeping your back straight, squat down and pick up the dumbbells with an underhand grip (palms facing up).
  3. Get into the starting position by keeping your back straight and bending at the knees. Let the dumbbells slide down your thighs until they're just below knee height.
  4. Execute by pulling the dumbbells up under your chest as far as possible.
  5. Pause, and then slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.
  6. Repeat for desired reps.

Exercise Tips:

  1. Keep your back straight, shoulder blades back, and eyes facing the front.
  2. Keep your elbows tucked in by your sides as you pull the weight up.
  3. Squeeze your shoulder blades together at the top of the movement.
