Upright Barbell Row

Upright Barbell Row

| Muscle Group(s): | Modality:


Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, grasp bar at shoulder width or slightly wider (NOTE: Taking a narrow grip will increase internal rotation/protraction at the shoulder girdle, thereby increasing stress to the posterior cuff). Maintain neutral spine.


Keeping the wrists tucked towards the body, lift the barbell vertically to perform an upright row driving elbows towards the ceiling. Lower under control and repeat.
