45° incline row is the way to go, says a a 2014 study by sweeney et al. for the american council on exercise.
they performed the movement pronated with dumbbells. i feel it better when supinated with a barbell, but that's an anecdotal observation.
we're all different. toy around with s**t and find what works for you.
also, respect to the black dude spittin' game on that petite little thang to my left.
It's insane to me still has much my body has changed since last year! on the left is january 2016, and the right is today! 126lbs ➡️➡️101lbs. down over 25 pounds! inches off everywhere! now, don't get me wrong so many people would say there is nothing wrong with the picture on the left. but for me i was unhappy, uncomfortable, and always groggy. i just didn't feel good! you can even see the look of "what the fuck" on my face! and now today i feel so much more comfortable with my body! i have more energy and i have way more confidence! i'm working on trying to build a strong physique in 2017! as well as continue my studying with the american council on exercise and build a career in health and fitness so i can help others achieve their goals to live a healthier life just like i did! i'm so grateful for my amazing support system between my loving boyfriend who has supported me the entire way and encouraged me to keep going! he never once made me feel ashamed of my previous weight gain and continues to remind me of how far i have come! my family and friends are always supportive as well, participating in running events with me and even hitting the gym with me. and of course my wonderful instagram followers who like and comment on my posts and make me feel like a celebrity 😂

I am beyond grateful to be part of the ace family! i’m officially certified as a group fitness instructor! physical activity is one of the most amazing things we can do for our well being. its powers are undeniable. i’m so excited to share this passion! couldn’t have done it without my main squeeze reminding me of patience, working hard, never giving up, to keep moving, and that every single morning we wake up we’re given a gift. cheers to achieving goals! keep moving! ❤️#acefitness#acefamily#americancouncilonexercise#acecerified#fitness#keepmoving#toneitup
Circa 1996. little did i know that my aerobics instructor wouldn’t show up that day and i’d be asked to sub for her at women’s workout world in chicago. yes, i was scared to teach a class full of english speaking people, but i’m so glad i agreed despise the nerves. it was a fun class and i was offered a job on the spot. there i stand feeling confident about staying in the fitness field, not knowing there was so much more to come. sometimes when something goes wrong you are presented with an opportunity that will change your life, just like the day something went wrong for beto perez and he didn’t have his music for class, so he improvised using a cassette tape that he would listen to in his car full of latin music. that moment was the beginning of the funnest exercise program in the world, zumba® fitness. i’m so glad i accepted the challenge in that scary moment, because it has lead to the amazing opportunities of crossing paths with beautiful and amazing people that i would’ve not been able to connect with if i would’ve allowed fear to stop me. look at your circumstances as an opportunity , not a problem :) #fitness#fitnessjourney#zumba#americancouncilonexercise#afaa#acepersonaltrainer
