Thrust dumbbell in the slope of a neutral grip

Thrust dumbbell in the slope of a neutral grip – the technique of doing the exercise:

  1. Take the dumbbells so that the palms are facing each other, slightly bend your knees and bend forward, bending at the waist until your upper body is almost parallel to the floor. Keep your back bent at the waist. Hint: The head should be raised. Dumbbells are in front of you, in the arms stretched perpendicular to the trunk and floor. This will be your starting position.
  2. Keep the body motionless, on exhalation pull the dumbbells to yourself, bending your arms in the elbows. Keep your elbows close to your body, weight should be held by your forearms. At the end of the movement, strain the back muscles and stay in this position for a few seconds.
  3. On inhalation slowly lower the dumbbells to their original position.
  4. Carry out the necessary number of repetitions.

Attention: refrain from performing this exercise if you have problems with back or waist. Carefully ensure that the back is bent in the lower back during the whole exercise, otherwise you can injure your back. If you have doubts about your weight, it's better to take less weight than the bigger one.

Variations: also you can perform this exercise using the cable of the lower block with the V-shaped handle or the bar.
