The dumbbell T-hold is a static exercise that primarily targets the obliques, although it also works the shoulders and upper back. It involves holding a dumbbell in the air while in a side plank position. It is usually performed for timed holds, although it can be performed dynamically for reps as a plank with dumbbell rotation.
