The Dumbbell Pullover is an exceptional compound exercise, perfect for those seeking to enhance overall body strength, especially in the upper body. This exercise uniquely targets multiple muscle groups, including the rib cage muscles, pectorals (pecs), latissimus dorsi (lats), triceps, and the serratus anterior, contributing to improved shoulder mobility and stability. For older adults or those with limited mobility, performing the Dumbbell Pullover on the floor instead of a bench is highly advantageous. This modification offers a safer, more stable environment, reducing the risk of balance issues or discomfort often associated with benches.
