Dumbbell Wide Grip Upright Row

dumbbell wide grip upright row
  • This primarily hits the anterior and lateral deltoids, with the wider grip allowing for more emphasis on the lateral head.
  • Start with the dumbbells in front of the body, with the back of your hands facing away from you.
  • Shoulders should be retracted (pulled back)
  • Raise the dumbbells, keeping the elbows above the wrists at all times.
  • Make sure the dumbbell is relatively close to the body.
  • Stop when the elbows are level with shoulders or slightly below. Any higher could cause shoulder impingement.
  • Lower slowly under control.
