The dumbbell row exercise will help strengthen the muscles of the upper back, lats, rear deltoids, forearms, biceps, and even the core. For an upper body exercise, the dumbbell row has almost countless benefits for nearly all strength, athletic, and fitness goals.

Benefit 1: Makes you appealing! Helps coveted V-Shape torso for the men, Hourglass shape for the women.
