New video is up on my channel ! :D The Dumbbell Pullover EXPLAINED !
The dumbbell pullover is a great exercise that can be used either at the end of your chest workouts, or at the end of your back workouts because this exercise hits both your lats and your chest. It's also a great exercise for bringing up your serratus. Although this exercise hits both your chest and your lats, I'm going to show you 2 variations and each one focuses more on either the chest or your lats.
If you're doing a back workout, here's how you'll perform the exercise, this way I feel a lot more lats activation than the chest. Mind-muscle connection has a role in this as well. You're going to lay on a bench only with your upper back, grab the dumbbell and stretch your lats as much as you can on the way down and bring it somewhere above your upper chest. No need to go any further, I've seen a lot of people bringing it all the way down to the belly, and there's no reason for that.
If you're doing a chest workout, now you're going to lay on the bench with your entire body and that way your lats are going to have a lot less involvement in the movement. So you'll perform the movement exactly as I mentioned before. stretch your arms as much as you can on the way down, and on the way up bring the dumbbell above your chest region.https://youtu.be/sWEdBR3va6g
