Plate curl to car drivers: Remember to squeeze your biceps during the plate curl (this is called mind-muscle connection and improves the effectiveness of the workout). Raise the plate to shoulder height for the car-drivers.
Plank back row to T rotation: Keep your hips low and try to create a straight line across both arms as you raise the dumbbell overhead. Also, remember to squeeze your back muscles during the row.
Plate row to overhead raise: Squeeze your back during the plate row and raise the plate straight overhead (do not try to force your arms past their natural range of motion). Feel free to use a dumbbell instead or no weight at all for this exercise.
