This is a great exercise for the back. If you want to put on muscle you will need to select heavier dumbbells. If your goal is muscle definition you should go with lighter dumbbells.

One thing to point out is that your lower back needs to be reasonably strong for this exercise. Thus, this may not be the best exercise for complete beginners. This movement is best for those that have a year or two of weightlifting under their belt.

Last but not least, make sure you take your time in executing this movement. This exercise is most effective if it's not rushed.
