Upright rowing


COURTESY OF GLOBAL FITNESS

Major muscles used

  • Deltoids (Side and rear)
  • Trapezius

Perform upright rowing

  • Stand upright holding a barbell in both hands, palms facing your body, leaning on your upper thighs.
  • Your hands should be placed in a narrow grip, about 6-8 inches apart, and arms should be extended down in front of you, back straight, and abdominals tight.
  • Your back should be upright with shoulders back and chest out.
  • Pull the barbells up slowly to your chin, keeping the barbells close to your body and with elbows high and pointed out.
  • When the barbell nearly touches your chin, flex your shoulder muscles and pause for a brief second.
  • Lower the weight in a slow, controlled manner back to the starting position.

Be careful

  • Don't rock or sway your body to gain momentum.
  • Don't jerk the barbell up in an attempt to complete the exercise.
  • Don't let the barbell just fall. Be sure to resist the weight as you lower it slowly.
