If you are looking for that one exercise that can correct a hunched back posture, look no further than the prone high rows. It effectively strengthens the muscles that pull your shoulder blades together, preventing a hunched back. The exercise mainly targets the posterior deltoid region of your shoulder. This practice is much more efficient than the bent over lateral raise to work your posterior deltoid region. It can also be an ideal exercise for those with lower back injuries.
The exercise can be performed lying flat on your abdomen on a bench but if your tummy is large, perform one-arm dumbbell rows instead of this exercise, as it involves the same muscles. You need to breathe right, use the proper form and technique and most importantly, challenge yourself while performing the exercise to get the maximum benefits.
In this video, Kaizzad Capadia, fitness trainer and co-founder of K11 Fitness Academy, shows you exactly how to do prone high rows. If you think that it’s a very simple exercise to do, you better watch this, and we bet you’ll be surprised.
