How to do Underhand Dumbbell Row

Place two dumbbells (weighing about 20-25 lbs) on the ground in front of you. Keeping your back upright, bend at the knees and grab the dumbbells using an underhand grip. Bring the dumbbells up to your knee height, which is your starting position. Pull the weights up until they are under your chest. Wait for a few seconds at the top of the movement, and then lower the weights back to the initial position.
