A beautiful, strong torso with elegant posture and protection from back pain, all while enhancing your metabolic rate and a big return on your exercise time investment?
Yes, it’s possible with this outstanding exercise in your fitness arsenal.
But before we go another step, it bears repeating:
Play safe with weights! (Please!)
Correct posture, alignment, muscle activation AND exercise execution are cornerstones of a successful weight training – or any resistance training, for that matter – workout.
The reason? Avoid the “ow!” factor: it is easy to set up challenging free weight exercises so that you:
1) protect your back
2) strengthen and protect your joints
3) maximize your returns in muscle (and bone) building as well as body shaping! Health AND weight loss or weight management are enhanced.
In this video, I show you in just 3 minutes how to accomplish this while using one of the foremost, primo back exercises of all time (I do these a couple of times every week!): the one-arm dumbbell row.
One Arm Dumbbell Row
This exercise focuses on the latissimus dorsi (see image left) muscles in the back.
Yet by aligning your body correctly and providing stability via my 7 Seconds To A Flat Belly move and dynamic tension of the entire body, you build a stronger core and work the entire body in concert!
I hope you enjoy this short video – if you have any questions, I invite you to post then in “comments” below.
Here’s to being strong, energetic, and shapely!
This is fantastic Lani – and sooooooo helpful! Especially showing me how to add in the 7 sec belly too! This will really help me to maximize my workout. I know I have already seen a difference in just how I can move/carry heavier items than before you had me do Supersets! So it DOES work – and now just think how much better I will be doing one arm rows properly and maximized! Wohoo!!
Thank you for the dose of enthusiasm and energy – you make fitness catching!
I really appreciate the feedback on the video and glad you like!
Lani, I love this video! You put something new into weight training instruction – lots of safety, and I really can use that.
Will you be making more?
Thank you SO much for posting your comments! Yes, I have more on the way – it’s proving to be a popular topic and the safety principles are simple yet important – once you get the idea, you can layer them into any of your resistance exercise.
Glad you like!
