Barbell pullovers

With arms extended, hold the barbell with an overhand grip and hands shoulder-width apart:

• Inhale and expand the chest as much as possible, lowering the barbell behind the head bending slightly at the elbows.

• Exhale while returning to the initial position.

This exercise develops the pectoralis major, long head of the triceps brachii, teres major, latissimus dorsi, serratus anterior, rhomboids, and pectoralis minor.

This is an excellent movement for developing the flexibility and expansion of the rib cage. It should be performed with light weights using proper form and breathing.

ÜEMERSE CIIIIVI-UPS

Hang from a bar with an underhand grip, hands shoulder-width apart:

• Inhale and push out the chest as you raise the chin to the bar.

* Exhale at the end of the movement.

This movement develops the latissimus dorsi and teres major and is associated with the intense work of the biceps brachii and brachlalis.

Therefore, it could be included In an arm workout program.

This exercise also contracts the middle and lower portions of the trapezius, the rhomboids, and the pectorals.

Performing this exercise takes a certain amount of strength: use a high pulley to make it easier.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
