Place one hand on a bench for support and hold a dumbbell in the opposite hand. Stagger your legs and bend your torso so it’s parallel to the floor. Row the dumbbell to your hip and then lower it with control until it rests on the floor. Pause and repeat.
*Grasp the handle with hands outside shoulder width and pull it to your collarbone. Drive your elbows down and back, and allow the weight to pull you slightly forward and stretch your lats at the top of the lift.
