This week's movement of the week is a nice variation from last week. You will still be performing a 'swinging' motion with the dumbbell, however, the swing will be in the lateral (side-to-side) direction. This is going to allow you to get a better feel of the 'pulling' motion that will lead the pressing motion.
The goal this week is to really connect your lats (lattisimus dorsi or the outside back muscle) to the rowing motion. When we connect more with the lat, we are less likely to shrug or collapse the shoulder blade into the spine.
