Dumbbell Pullovers - Chest and Back Move

Dumbbell pullovers are a great supplemental exercise for both the back and chest.     I have not performed these in quite some time.    Then last week, I added it to the end of my back workout.  WOW – did I feel it and in a good way.    Great upper body move to finish off your day. 

To perform the pullovers, lie on a flat bench, hold the inside part of a dumbbell with both hands in a diamond shape on the top part (plate) of the dumbbell.    You can keep your elbows slightly bent or straight armed.   "Slightly bent" puts more emphasis on the chest muscles.   "Straight-armed" puts more emphasis on the back muscles.    Lower dumbbell over and beyond head, stretch back before your arms reach parallel and power the dumbbell back up using your chest and back.   You will feel this move in the chest, back and even your abs.   

Add the move in every so often to challenge your muscles.  

Stay tuned………
