Upright Barbell Row - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Take hold of a barbell. Your hands should be slightly less than shoulder width away from each other. Use an overhand grip for this.

Step 2

Stand up and lift the barbell until it’s on the same height as your thighs. Your arms should be fully extended downward with your elbows slightly bent. Keep your back straight. This is your starting position.

Step 3

Lift the barbell all the way up until it almost touches your chin. Do this by raising your elbows to your sides to lift the barbell. Keep the barbell as close to your body as possible. Exhale as you do this movement. Tip: Your elbows should drive the motion, and should always be higher than your forearms.

Step 4

Pause for a second at the top of the movement then lower the barbell down until you’re back to your starting position. Inhale as you do this.

Step 5

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
