home workout: dumbbell rows for lats

scoobysworkshop.com Dumbbell rows are a simple exercise you can do at home for lats, all you need is a padded chair and a dumbbell. This exercise, when done in conjunction with pullups, makes the core of a great home back workout. The key to getting maximum results from this exercise is to use perfect form, no bouncing allowed. When doing this, concentrate on keeping your torso completely motionless and only moving your arm up to your hip.Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding. Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time, gyms are great but home workouts can save you time and money. A cheap dumbbell set from a garage sale or walmart is all it takes to get started with your home workouts.

    Hello Scooby!

    I am wondering if you can show us some good lower back exercises. I am not talking about those simple, endurance exercises that are designed to prevent lower back injury when doing heavy lifting. I am talking about exercises that are designed to develop actual STRENGTH, and DEFINITION of the lower back muscles. That’s off course not to say that I don’t care about endurance and preventing injury. ;)

    Haha. . . I was using too much weight, and I may have damaged my back.

    to get the best benefit of becoming stronger and getting more muscle growth is resting. if u lift when your arms are still sore it kills your muscle recovery and does more damage. so it means u are overtrain. resting is just as important as training hard. just wait until your arms are no longer sore and you should be aight.

    Great vid scooby!

    Keeping perfect form I find this really works the rear delts more than the lats. Any pointers for engaging the lats more?

    Thank you so much for your efforts!

    oh, lol, my bad.

    Yes, this vid does look like a horrible photoshop job. No tanning booth for me, I wear SPF30 everytime I go out but I’m in the sun a lot and wear a hat to keep the sun of my face (hence the pale-face).

  8. DeadCee says:

    haha layy off the tanning salon bro. your face looks like it was photoshopped on

    Ok, I have been trying these, but instead of using a chair. i have been doing it on the floor from my knees, is that ok?

  12. huireg says:

    scooby ur r way too funny. 

  13. mohedd says:

    hey guys, just a question, how much are you supposed to work out for? and with what intensity (if you are a beginner). Is it ok to work out your arms if your arms are still sore from the previous workout? thanks.

    Head to the gym and start lifting weights.
    Do a lot of compound exercises dealing with your biggest muscles(legs, back, chest, shoulders). Do not over exercise and make sure you eat something healthy after you work out. I usually drink protein shakes(no flavour 100% whey) with water and some mixed berries. There is not really a way to get muscles fast(naturally), sorry to tell you that it takes a while to get “jacked”. Some people are lucky with genetics and are able to bulk up fairly quickly.

    hey man im 17 too, and puttin on fat, then ” claiming ” to turn into muscle just dont work. Check out scooby’s link of his web page , and look under the myths section. Be patient with ur trainin, look at one of his trainin progammes and the nutrition section

  16. markobegus says:

  17. adihash9999 says:

  22. jacko89d says:
