If you downhill or cross country ski, ice climb, play ice hockey, or just want to stay in shape this Winter, doing Bent Over Rows will help strengthen your upper body. To make this exercise more challenging, you can do it while using a set of dumbbells and a resistance band. This move will target your upper back, mid-back, and triceps.

  • Place a set of three to five pound dumbbells on the floor next to the outside edges of your feet. Hold onto either end of a resistance band, and step onto the middle of it with both feet, so your ankles are directly underneath your hips. Lean forward, bending at your hips, and pick up a dumbbell in each hand. It's OK if your knees are slightly bent.
  • Keep your back parallel to the floor, and let your arms hang down. From here, pull both elbows up so they're in line with your torso. Be sure to keep your elbows in and pointed upwards. Then slowly lower the weights back to the starting position to complete one rep. If you need to, adjust the length of the resistance bend according to how difficult you want to make this exercise.
  • Complete three sets of 12 reps.
