Dumbbell Single Arm Row
Choose a flat bench and place a dumbbell on each side of it.
Place the right leg on top of the end of the bench, bend your torso forward from the waist until your upper body is parallel to the floor, and place your right hand on the other end of the bench for support.
Use the left hand to pick up the dumbbell on the floor and hold the weight while keeping your lower back straight. The palm of the hand should be facing your torso. This will be your starting position.
Pull the resistance straight up to the side of your chest, keeping your upper arm close to your side and keeping the torso stationary. Breathe out as you perform this step. Tip: Concentrate on squeezing the back muscles once you reach the full contracted position. Also, make sure that the force is performed with the back muscles and not the arms. Finally, the upper torso should remain stationary and only the arms should move. The forearms should do no other work except for holding the dumbbell; therefore do not try to pull the dumbbell up using the forearms.
Lower the resistance straight down to the starting position. Breathe in as you perform this step.
Repeat the movement for the specified amount of repetitions.
Switch sides and repeat again with the other arm.A watershed moment in Chris’ training career occurred in 2010 when he trained for six months under Mike Boyle, former head strength and conditioning coach for the Boston Bruins, Boston Red Sox, and Boston University Hockey. Says Chris on the experience:
“I had always been an athlete, and then through avid study and private client work, I became a capable club trainer. It wasn’t until my experience with Mike and his staff, however, where I became a coach who could transform lives. Trainers are for horses! Being a coach means being a discerning critical thinker who can deeply understand a client's needs and goals and lead them to success. Becoming empowered to empower people is something I am grateful to have learned at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning.”
After MBSC, Chris spent two years working with the NBA’s strength and conditioning coaches where he directly studied NBA players Tim Duncan, Ray Allen, Jeff Green, Ricky Rubio, and Jimmer Fredette among others. Working directly under former San Antonio Spurs’ strength coach and 4-time NBA Champion, Mike Brungardt, and current Miami Heat strength coach and 3-time NBA Champion, Bill Foran, the experience provided a behind the scenes foray into the world of elite fitness with some of the world’s most talented athletes. It also led to the 2013 founding of Chris Doherty Fitness in New York City.
When not training clients, Chris enjoys pursuing his own diverse fitness efforts. Despite a more traditional strength and conditioning background, he attends regular classes at Crossfit Wall Street and the occasional Barry’s Bootcamp class to keep things fresh. Outside of the gym, Chris enjoys traveling to Las Vegas, rock music, NYC dining, and is an avid golfer. #health #fitness #fit #fitnessmodel #fitnessaddict #fitspo #workout #bodybuilding #cardio #gym #train #training #healthy #active #strong #motivation #sport #determination #lifestyle #diet #getfit #cleaneating #eatclean #excercise #handsome #guy #swag #swagger #man #styles #subscribe #newvideo #youtuber #tutorial #whatshot #bestoftheday #whatshotnow #whatshotongoogleplus #whatshotongoogle
