The Barbell Upright Row is an exercise that targets the shoulders and traps. If you have past shoulder impingement issues, you may want to avoid this exercise.
Watch the BARBELL UPRIGHT ROW: exercise demonstration video above.
To perform BARBELL UPRIGHT ROW:
1. Hold a barbell with an overhand wide grip, outside of shoulder width. I prefer a wider grip as this recruits more of the middle and rear deltoids. It also reduces the height you can lift the bar. 2. By raising the bar just to your chest line, it can help reduce shoulder impingement issues.
3. With your back upright and arms extended with the barbell hanging by your thighs, begin the movement by raising your elbows up and out, keeping the bar close to your body, until your reach chest level.
4. Your elbows should always remain higher than your forearms and your back should remain stationary.
5. Reverse the movement by lowering the bar back to the beginning position.
