When performing a single-arm, bent-over dumbbell row, first choose a weight that you want to use. Next, stand with your feet pointed straight and be sure to keep your belly in tight. Bend at your waist until your chest is at 45-degree angle to ground and hang one arm in front of your body with a dumbbell in your hand. Place the other hand on your hip. From this position, row the dumbbell back by bringing your thumb toward your armpit. Squeeze your shoulder blades together and pause, making sure that you are not arching your back. Return the dumbbell to the start position and repeat for the desired number of repetitions. Repeat the exercise on the other arm.
