How it Works?

This move targets to build strength and size of the lats and back muscles.

How to do it?

  1. Holding a dumbbell in each hand, bend at the hips and knees until your torso is parallel to the floor. Keep your back straight with a slight arch and your arms should be hanging in front of you, with your palms facing inwards (neutral grip).
  2. With your core tight and back flat. Raise the dumbbells to the sides until your elbows are in line with your shoulders.
  3. Keep your elbows slightly bent, don’t forget to exhale.
  4. Hold for a count of two.
  5. Inhale as you lower the dumbbells to the starting position in a controlled manner.

Make sure the motion of your arms are perpendicular to your torso. This keeps the lats from taking over the movement.
