Instructions

  • Lie down on a bench and lift a dumbbell up to almost straight arms above you.

  • Reverse the motion and return the dumbbell to the starting position.

Commentary

Pullover is an exercise that can be used to train both the chest and/or lat muscles, depending on how you perform the exercise. Focus on contact in the muscle you want to train, and prioritize form over load. A dumbbell or a small barbell are good options for resistance.
