Close Grip Row
Using a set of heavy dumbbells, this move targets your upper back.
-Close Grip Row: Grab a set of heavy dumbbells and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend forward at least 45 degrees. Your arms should be straight and directly below your shoulders. Now, squeezing your shoulder blades together, pull your elbows straight back keeping your arms close to your sides. Repeat 15 rows. The second time you do the close grip row, balance on your left leg for seven reps squeezing your shoulder blades together and pulling your elbows straight back. Then, switch legs and balance on your right leg for seven reps. The third time you do the close grip row, stand on a thin folded yoga mat or bath towel, balancing on your left leg for seven reps. The unstable surface adds a balance challenge engaging more body parts as you perform the exercise. Switch legs for the final seven reps. This move works your upper back.
