There is one exercise that ranks amongst the most ineffective movements in bodybuilding. If you’re doing it, you’re kinda wasting your time.
It’s an exercise for the lats.
WHY ARE DUMBBELL PULLOVERS SO CRAPPY?
For about 50% of the range of motion, there’s actually little-to-no resistance on the lats.
Yes, there’s good resistance at the bottom of the rep. But from 50% of the way up, the resistance drops off, and by the time you get to the top, you’re just holding a dumbbell and the lats are not activated at all (because they’re not needed to hold a dumbbell in this position).
Here are much better lat options…
- Lat Pulldowns
- Bent Over Barbell Rows
- Seated Cable Rows
- One-arm Dumbbell Rows
- Pullover Machine
- Kneeling Cable Bent-Over Pullovers
- Decline Cable Pullovers
With all these exercises, there is no “drop off” in resistance during any part of the range of motion. You therefore get “Constant Tension” on the intended muscle throughout the whole range of motion – an important ingredient for growth!
All the exercises I have listed above are THT-recommended movements. They are a part of the THT Exercise Bank.
Do you have the full THT Exercise Bank? It’s free. It lists every single effective exercise for every single body part. So if you need a substitute exercise or just want a change, this is exactly what you need.
