Dumbbell Rear Delt Row

Instructions

Preparation

Kneel over side of bench with arm and leg to side. Grasp dumbbell.

Execution

Pull dumbbell up out to side with upper arm perpendicular to trunk until upper arm is just beyond horizontal. Lower and repeat.

Comments

If upper arm travels closer than perpendicular to trunk, latissimus dorsi becomes involved. Elbow should be raised directly lateral to shoulder. Positioning torso at 45° is not sufficient angle to target rear deltoids. Keep torso bent over approximately horizontal. Much lighter resistance is required as Dumbbell Bent-over Row.
