There are many ways to perform dumbbell rows.
The most functional way is to have a wide base leg. If you are rowing with your right arm, your left knee would be on the bench, and your right leg should be out about a foot to a foot and a half.
Always keep the base leg slightly bent, this ensures you will not compensate solely with your lower back.
You can have a slight torso rotation while you lift the dumbbell. This is functional like many pulling activities.
You can also perform the dumbbell row as a strict isolation exercise. You could also perform without the bench.

*******www.squidoo****/best-ab-workout The 3 Best Abdominal Exercises that Are Not Traditional Ab Exercises
by Mike Geary - Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer
Instead of the typical ab routines that we see so often with crunches, situps, leg lifts, etc... I like to give my readers better options for metabolism-boosting high intensity workouts that work their entire body while also working their abs... thus building rock hard abs & core, but also creating a much better fat-burning workout than a typical ab workout.
I'm going to show you an example today of one of my favorite "ab workouts" that doesn't include any direct "ab exercises" at all. It's in a tri-set format (similar to a super-set but alternating between 3 exercises).
1a. Renegade Dumbbell Rows
1b. Front Squats with Barbell
1c. Mountain Climbers on Floor
A good rep scheme to use with this could be 3-4 sets of 8 reps for each exercise, or more sets for less reps, such as 5 sets of 5 reps of each exercise. Mountain climbers can be done for a time interval (such as 30 seconds) instead of "reps".
Exercise Pics & Descriptions:
Renegade dumbbell rows are done starting in a pushup position with the hands on 2 dumbbells. You then row one dumbbell up while stabilizing your body with the other arm. Bring the dumbbell back to the ground and alternate the rowing arm while stabilizing with the opposite arm. This stabilizing effect during the rows creates incredible work for your entire midsection core area. Trust me... you'll feel it in the abs!

Front squats are done similar to back squats, however with the barbell in front of your body on the front of your shoulders instead of resting on the upper back as in back squats. You stabilize the barbell on your shoulders by crossing your arms and pushing your fists into the bar against your shoulders while keeping your elbows out in front of the body.
This takes a little practice at first, so you will want to seek a professional trainer at your gym to help you with the form. Front squats require extreme stabilization strength from the abs due to the barbell weight being shifted to the front of the body instead of the back. Even though this is mostly a leg exercise, you'll feel this one in the abs big time!

Mountain climbers are done by starting in a pushup position and then shuffling your feet in and out so that your knees are moving in under your chest and then back out to starting position. It sort of resembles climbing a mountain but flat on the floor. If you want an advanced version, you can also shuffle your hands 8-10 inches forward and backward in addition to the leg movements. This really makes it a full body exercise and MUCH more difficult than standard mountain climbers.

After finishing each exercise, rest about 30 seconds before starting the next exercise. Rest about 1-2 minutes after completing each "tri-set" before repeating.
This will give you one of the best ab workouts you've ever had without even doing any direct ab exercises. You'll see what I mean after you try it!

push-ups are a good exercise to work your chest but you can add in a light dumbbell row to really work your core to the extreme while you get your chest and back.
This is not a mass building or strengthening exercise.
If you are looking to functionally train your core or just try something new this a fun and challenging exercise to choose.
Remember, if you are a man or woman, child or adult, your exercise program must include exercises such as squats, dead lifts, bench presses, pull-ups lat pulls, military presses, etc. to be successful.
Exercises such as this are supplementary and are best used sparingly.
