How To Perform Exercise

The dumbbell upright row exercise helps targets your upper back, deltoids, traps and even your biceps.

Steps :

1.) Start off standing up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart and keeping your abs tight.

2.) Grab a dumbbell in each hand, with your palms facing in towards your body, and elbows out away from your sides.

3.) Slowly raise the dumbbell to about chin level, but no so far that it feels uncomfortable.

3.) Once in position slowly raise the dumbbells up to chin level until you feel a squeeze in your deltoids.

4.) Hold for a count at the top position and then return back to the starting position.
