Description

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.

The one arm dumbbell row is a compound movement that builds mid back thickness but also hits the shoulders and biceps pretty hard.

Personally, I like to finish up with one arm dumbbell rows because they really stretch out the outer lats.

The important point to remember about this exercise is to keep your back straight - Don't hunch your back. Slightly bend your knees and pull into a straight line
