Standing Dumbbell Row

Stand with your feet parallel about hip-width apart while holding dumbbells in your hands with palms facing inwards. Bend your knees slightly. Bring your torso forward by bending at the waist, keeping your back straight until it is almost parallel to the floor.

The dumbbells should hang directly in front of you as your arms hang perpendicular to the floor and your torso. This is your starting position.
While keeping the torso straight, exhale and lift the dumbbells to your side, keeping your elbows close to your body.
Inhale and slowly lower the dumbbells to the starting position.
WARNING: This exercise is not recommended for people with back problems!

  1. For the moderate to advanced fitness participant, this is a very good exercise. For the beginner, I like the seated or standing rowing machine that places support in front of the chest. This minimizes the risk for back injuries IF proper form is sacrificed.
    Love your videos. Action pictures speak a 1000 words. Great job.

    1. Thank you so much, Jonathan 🙂
      I love those rowing machines!
      My bad, I should post a safer exercise for beginners. Single arm and a chair (it’s for home 😉 ).
      Have a great weekend!!
      Big hug, David


    1. I have two slipped disks since I was 20 🙂
      I guess it´s hard to believe, but it´s all practice, and never give up. Now, my challenge is the lotus pose… I´m almost there 😀
      Btw, stay tuned, the back pain relief routine v2.0 is coming!
