standing dumbbell breast stroke exercise

STANDING DUMBBELL BREAST STROKE


VIDEO DEMO:


EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. SETUP: Take an overhand-grip on a pair of dumbbells and pin your shoulders back.
  2. LIFT: Raise the dumbbells out in front until they reach shoulder level, then draw them out to the side to create a ‘T’ shape. Lower the dumbbells to your sides in a controlled motion, and start the next rep out front again.
  3. TIP: This exercise is a triple-header in terms of muscle involvement. You have the front raise portion (which works the front delts), followed by a negative portion of a lateral raise (middle head), and moving the weights around with good posture will also activate the rear delts as stabilizers!
