1. Using a flat bench, grasp a dumbbell with your left hand.
2. Rest your right knee on the flat bench. Balance your body using your free arm.
3. Bend forward at the hips.
4. Your torso should be parallel to the floor keep and your lower back flat.
6. Slowly lower the dumbbell until your arm is fully extended, fully stretching your lats. Repeat movement.
7. Repeat movement with your right hand.
The one arm dumbbell row is a great exercise for the mid back. It's also a great substitute for the bent over barbell row - For those of you who can't perform this exercise.
