Susan’s Trainer Concept for the Month
Apr 24th, 2007 by admin

Yes, involving dumbells… Resistance training using the body in space is a great way to strengthen both the targeted muscles and the postural muscles of the trunk.

Become an X, face down, balanced on the toes & hands, arms are straight & you are a plank. Holding a dumbell under each palm (& without rolling the hips or hiking up the butt), proceed to do 1-arm rows, alternating arms. For more fun, add a push-up between each row. This will work your upper back muscles, and has the extra benefit of being a super “core” stabilization exercise.
