Effective Strength Training Moves: One Arm Dumbbell Bent Over Row

Time to get that sexy back!  This move is super popular is all of my strength training classes! I can totally see why because it’s so effective! You are targeting your back and your arms all at the same time.

As usual, it is recommended that you start with a 5lb weight and graduate as the movement begins to feel easier.  This is a great move to add to the 10 Beginner Strength Training Arm Exercises and if you are trying to build muscle don’t forget to check out this Easy Guide To Building Muscle For Women!

I love this move! This one is a regular on strength training days but it looks like I might have been doing it wrong?

If you don’t have a bench in your home, getting down on one knee works too. You can extend your opposite leg out for stability. 

I have been laying my non dumbbell hand down flat on the surface meanwhile I should have been gripping the side of the bench! I love this move because I feel super strong and invincible when I do it!

I have, but I usually do both sides at the same time to save time … I wonder how much difference the exact position of your other hand matters?

Similar to you, I have been laying my non-dumbbell hand flat on the surface and not gripping the side of the bench. I’m not sure if it makes a big difference, but I will probably test it out the next time I go to the gym.
