One-Arm Lat Row


A few keys to remember:

· Progress gradually. Don’t try to do too much too soon. Listen to your body. When you need a rest, rest.

· A solid program must train both the upper and lower body.

· Know why you are performing each exercise. Set goals and lift weights because you want to, not because someone wants you to.

· Always breathe during a repetition and go through a full range of motion.

· Always consult with your family doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

    A tip of advice on the amount of weight to use: if you’re under 15 years old, DON’T GO OVER 50 POUNDS. My personal trainer talked with my brother and I about that, and she said that if you go over 50 pounds and you’re under 15, you can really screw up your muscles.

    that is cool

  4. To respond to joey’s comment, it is true that working out the “lat” is important. Many guys love to bench press (chest) but fail to evenly work out their back. The chest and back muscles are an example of ANTAGONISTIC muscles (triceps and biceps are another example). These muscles pull on each other and must be ballanced in strength to avoid problems.

  5. Its good. but you should really have one leg on the bench and an arch in your back.

    i do these at an angle, but this way works well too

  7. as for how much weight you should use, you should use how ever much you feel comtherable doing a set of 10-15 reps with.

    i started using 20 lbs and since then i’ve increased up to 50.

    also, another way to work your lats, is the pullup. but make sure your palms of your hands are facing AWAY from your body (so you’re looking at the back of your hand)

  8. sweet

  9. How much weight should you use when you start out…?

  10. wow cool. but how dose it help

    This exercise is good for your trunk and core muscles. Improving these can help your all-around athleticism. Sparq has agility programs and so does nike.

    woah.. Nice! Actully.. I slept through it..

  14. I Think the video is sometimes helpfull and sometimes not

    because most people just think that the latissimus dorsi is

    not important but I want to make sure every body should work

    on muscles if you want but you dont have to if you dont want to!!!

    He rubbed his side to identify the exact muscle that he was going to be using — the “lat” or latissimus dorsi. It’s helpful to have this in mind when you workout, because then you can really “focus” on what part of the body you are working.
