EXERCISE OF THE DAY: ALTERNATING DUMBBELL ROW
Using a set of 5 to 8 pound dumbbells, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent. Bend at your hips, keeping your lower back straight like a table top, and lower your torso until it’s almost parallel to the floor. Let the dumbbells hang at arm’s length from your shoulders. Now pull the dumbbell in your right hand to the side of your torso by raising your upper arm, bending your elbow and squeezing your shoulder blade toward your spine. As you lower that dumbbell, row the dumbbell in your left hand to the side your torso. That’s one repetition. Continue to alternate sides for one minute. Rest and repeat 3 times.
