Dumbbell Upright Row

This is a great exercise to engage your lats and traps muscles, while increasing mobility throughout the shoulder complex. It also helps strengthen the upper back.

*Keep the weights close to your body and keep your elbows flared out the entire time, even when pulling the dumbbells up towards your chest (not chin), hold for 1-2 seconds, and repeat.

*As you can see, I sometimes like to incorporate them with a straight-leg dead lift to mix it up and work more muscles.
