Quote: "When working out, length is not a substitute for intensity." - Bill Loguidice
The One Arm Dumbbell Row is a great exercise for developing strength and muscle mass in the back, shoulders and biceps.
This exercise is also great for improving and correcting your posture and muscle imbalances. These imbalances are caused by training one group of muscles more often than the opposing group of muscles. For example training the chest more often than the back will lead to the back and shoulders developing a rounded look that will lead to poor posture and more stress on the neck.
If you want an exercise that will strengthen the whole back and rear shoulders and give your upper body a more aesthetic look, then the One Arm Dumbbell Row is for you.
If you get bored with this exercise, you can vary it by performing seated cable rows, bent over barbell rows or a plank with dumbbell rows.
