Am I Doing This Right?
Whether you’ve been doing dumbbell back exercises for years or you’re just getting started, one question we need to put to rest: am I doing this right? Questions that frequently get asked about for: am I leaning over too much? Am I engaging my back enough? Is this grip correct? There are two things you can do to help eliminate this self-consciousness: isolate your back by stabilizing all other muscles and improve the mind muscle connection so that you are confident you’re only using your back. The first is straight forward. From our earlier example of bench-assisted dumbbell rows, stabilization means a straight back, no re-distribution of weight during the exercise, and a tight core. From here, as you lift the weight up, think of your arm as just an extension of your back. This should help you take mental notes of when your back is engaged instead of letting your arms do the work.
