On the 3rd day of #RulonRules, Coach Jen gave to me:

Add Dumbbell Rows to your routine

What muscles will the dumbbell row strengthen?

  • Trapezius
  • Rhomboids
  • Posterior Deltoid
  • Teres minor
  • Latissimus dorsi

With this exercise, I have seen many athletes knock out pull ups, chin ups, and Toes 2 Bar. What other sport uses these muscles? Check out Day #2 of #RulonRules of Strength Training & The Triathlete. It will help SWIMMING!!

Interested in what a dumbbell row looks like? Check out my video, Dumbbell Row Top Right. It is the movement in the top right corner. Here are a couple of photos of the dumbbell rows:

DB Rows – Starting Position. Keep one hand on leg without the weight.

DB Row Ending Position – Activate the shoulder girdle (scapula), latissimus dorsi, and traps
