Upright Row

The dumbbell upright row is perhaps one of the most neglected shoulder movements when the task at hand is developing boulder shoulders. Everyone knows pressing overhead and lifting laterally and to the front. But do you pull laterally? Likely not. This however is an exercise that is done commonly wrong. So let's pay close attention to the exercise execution.
