Dumbbell Rear Lat Raise

Stand with knees slightly bent and feet no more than shoulder width apart. Hold dumbbells (palms in) in front of body, with elbows slightly bent. Keeping back straight, bend forward from the hips. Squeeze together (retract) shoulder blades while, in a controlled motion, draw arms out and up to the sides. Contract lat muscles fully. While maintaining the controlled motion, return to starting position. Do not allow muscles to relax before next repetition.
