Overview

The straight-arm dumbbell pull-over is an exercise that targets the muscles of the pecs, lats, and serratus anterior muscles. Performing this movement with straight arms makes it more difficult, increases the stretch on the serratus muscles and lats, and forces the core to work harder. Old-school bodybuilders would perform pull-overs with light weights for sets of 20 between sets of heavy 20-rep squats, but they are more popular today in moderate rep ranges, such as 8-12 reps per set, as part of an upper-body workout.
