About this challenge

Profile pic: Worthster Challenge created by:

Challenge for: all

Challenge goal: improve general fitness

Challenge targets: whole body

Level: suitable for all competitors

Age: any age

What does this challenge involve?

Dumbbell Bent-over Row: Max reps x max weight.


Kneel over side of bench by placing knee and hand of supporting arm on bench. Position foot of opposite leg slightly back to side. Grasp dumbbell from floor.

The Exercise:
Pull dumbbell to up to side until it makes contact with ribs or until upper arm is just beyond horizontal. Return until arm is extended and shoulder is stretched downward. Repeat and continue with opposite arm.

Allow scapula to articulate, but don't rotate torso in effort to throw weight up. Torso should be close to horizontal. Positioning supporting knee and/or arm slightly forward or back will allow for proper levelling of torso. Torso may be position lower to allow for heavier dumbbell to make contact with floor, if desired.

This is a weight adjusted challenge, so the lower your bodyweight the more your reps count! Good luck.

  • Thank you for the great words Andy, every challenge i'm doing now like yourself, Bear, Worthster and a few others with putting up videos, you can't put imaginary figures when you've done a vid..the figures and times are there in clear black and white...as long as the form is near perfect then you are not going to get any bad comments made...Am in the process of devising a hideous circuit challenge from my old para days...watch this space! Keep up the great work And, huge respect..:)

  • Great. Werid but i've been thinking of starting training this again recently. Lets try keep the weight high though guys, no doubt most people could do several hundred reps on a silly light dumbell!
