Wide Row Instructions
1. Stand holding a pair of dumbbells in front of your thighs and bend forward at the waist.
2. Pull the dumbbells toward your chest, keeping your arms a little wider than shoulder-width apart.
3. Lower the dumbbells and return to the initial position.
4. Repeat this exercise until the set is complete.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Keep your knees slightly bent, open the chest, maintain your neck in line with your spine, and keep your back flat. Breathe out as you pull the dumbbells toward your chest and squeeze your back at the top of the lift. Maintain your core tight to give back support, and keep your palms facing down.
From the Shop
The dumbbell wide row targets the upper and middle back and also the lats, which are the muscles located at the sides of the back. The muscles of the upper back help pull the shoulders down and back. Training those muscles will improve the symmetry of your upper body and will also help you stand up tall and straight and maintain proper posture.

Sets And Reps
Choose a set of heavier dumbbells and do 2 or 3 sets of 12 to 16 repetitions. Training the upper back isn’t just for men, one of the secrets of looking great in a backless dress is doing exercises that target your back muscles.
