Deadlift Upright Row Instructions
1. Stand up with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold a set of dumbbells in front of your thighs.
2. Push your hips back and lower the dumbbells until your torso is parallel to the floor.
3. Stand up and pull the dumbbells toward your chest, keeping your arms a little wider than shoulder-width apart.
4. Repeat until the set is complete.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Keep your back straight, open the chest and pull your shoulders back. Inhale as you lower the dumbbells, and keep your legs straight or only slightly bent. Push through the heels to get back up, squeeze the glutes and breathe out as you pull the dumbbells toward the chest.
