Back Exercise: Dumbbell Pullover
The dumbbell pullover is an excellent move to build your back and chest. It works the latissimus dorsi, the large fan shaped muscle that runs across your middle and lower back, the pectoralis major, another large fan shaped muscle that runs across your chest as well as the long head of your triceps brachii muscle (back of arms).
To perform this exercise:
Tip: Do not lift your feet off the ground during the movement. Use your feet as an anchor and only move your arms upward using your chest muscles.
If you are performing this exercise on a Swiss ball do not let the ball
roll too far down your back whilst doing the exercise. The focus should
be placed on using your back and chest muscles to control the dumbbell.
