Hi, this is Dave Dreeas at Peak Performance here in Phoenix, Arizona and I'm here to talk about what joints are used during a dumbbell lateral row. When performing a dumbbell row you're going to use one dumbbell. You're going to place your off hand on a bench along with your off knee. You're going to slowly reach down, grab your dumbbell. You're going to pull in a rowing movement up towards your chest and then you will slowly release it back down. The dumbbell lateral row activates the elbow joint and the shoulder joint. As the elbow joint bends and flexes, the bicep is going to contract, the shoulders are going to flex and extend as you lift and lower the weight. As you can see, the elbow joint and the shoulder joint are the primary joints used and activated during the one arm dumbbell lateral row. I'm Dave Dreeas here at Peak Performance in Phoenix, Arizona. Thanks for watching.
