Bent Over Row Modifications

Based on your Fitness Level

  • Beginner, Intermediate, & Expert: All levels will want to use one dumbbell per hand. For each fitness level you will want to pick a weight that is challenging but allows you to finish each set.

Step-by-Step Instructions to Complete a Bent Over Row:

  1. Grab one dumbbell in each hand.
  2. Standing with your knees bent slightly, bend over at the waist (about 60-degrees) with your arms hanging down in front of you.
  3. With a straight back and a tight core, at the same time pull the dumbbells into your chest and then lower back down. (Maintain core tension throughout the duration of the exercise to not injury your back.)

That is one rep. Complete the number of recommended reps.
