Exercise of The Week: Single-Arm Dumbbell Row & Rotation
Happy Wednesday everyone!This week we are going to break out those dumbbells and put them to use! If you are just starting out I recommend 2-5 pounds and you can eventually work your way up. It is very important that you listen to your body you do not want to hurt yourself! So if something hurts just stop!Now, back to our exercise of the week…We are going to do an exercise with a really long name but don’t worry it is not complicated at all! You know me, I’m a bit klutzy so I like moves that aren’t overly complicated yet really give you results. So how do you do it?
First you are going to grab a dumbbell in your right hand. Make sure to bend your knees, and hinge forward at the hips (you should be parallel to the floor). Make sure you keep your back straight you do not want to arch your back. The arm holding the dumbbell should hang at arm’s length. You should look like A. In one motion you are going to bend your elbow to pull the dumbbell toward you while rotating your torso to the right. You should look like B. Hold it for 5 seconds and then slowly return to start. Do 2 sets of 10-15 on each side. That is it! That is all there is to it. See nothing too complicated, but it you will definitely see results.
If you want an added challenge do as many as you can in 1 minute on your right side. Take a 15-30 second breather and then do as many as you can for 1 minute on your left side! Have fun 🙂Other Exercises: Grasshopper Push Up Balance Fly Plank on an exercise ball Dumbbell Chop Dumbbell Swing Jackknife sit-up Bent Over Row 30 Day Fitness Challenges: Ax Chop Dumbbell swing Jackknife sit ups Russian Twist Just Abs Challenge Squats Dumbbell squat thrust
