Bent-Over Row

A Move That Might Help You Look 10 Pounds Thinner

If you're looking to tone up and stand taller, try the bent-over row! It is said that ditching the slouch can make you look up to 10 pounds thinner. Not only does this move strengthen your back to improve posture, but it helps shape your shoulders too. While you can do this move using a workout bench or chair, all you need is a set of dumbbells for the version below!

Here's how to do it:

  1. With a pair of dumbbells and your feet hip-width distance apart, bend at the waist. Keep your back parallel to the floor with a neutral spine — not rounded.
  2. With a slight bend in your knees, hold your arms and the dumbbells extended out in front of you.
  3. Engage your abs and squeeze your shoulder blades together as you bring the weights to your torso. Be sure to keep your elbows in and pointed upward.
  4. Slowly lower the weights back to the starting position to complete one rep. Do three sets of 12 reps.
