Then, lower them back down to the starting position and repeat the entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.

This exercise is a good exercise to use when your back workout gets old and in need of change. This movement will not build slabs of muscle onto your back, it's more for creating nice "details" on your back which will give you muscle separation and thus make your back look great.

The execution of this movement is relevant and proper pace is also required to get the most out of this exercise. You don't need to select super heavy dummbells because this movement is a finnesse movement. Thus, select dumbbells that are challenging enough but still allow you to perform this movement at a slower pace with great accuracy.
