  2. To avoid arching your spine, keep your abdominals toned as you pull the dumbbells in your body.
  3. Do not allow momentum to dictate your movements. Instead, control dumbbells for the entire rep.
  4. A false grip is a technique that allows you to hold the dumbbell in your hand while you are bending your back. Do not wrap your thumb around the dumbbell.
  5. Do not allow your head to protrude forward when you pull.
  6. Also, make sure the shoulder blade is free to move on the rib cage. Do not lock your shoulder blade. Instead, move it through the glenohumeral joint.
