This week for Wellness Wednesday we show you a Lat pull over using a dumbbell. This can also be done with a barbell if you don't have any dumbbells to work with. This movement will work your lats, shoulders, triceps, and core. Focus on keeping your back flat, and avoid flaring your ribs when you extend overhead. This is a strength movement, so go slow, and keep the weight under control the whole time. Try adding 3 sets of 10-15 reps to your next workout! Check back again next week for another edition of #wellnesswednesday

Front squats are great for building both leg and core strength, and they allow you to squat with your torso in a more upright position than in a back squat (when performed correctly). This in turn puts less stress on your low back, Remember to keep the bar resting on your shoulders, and keep your elbows high! Check back again next week for another edition of #wellnesswednesday
