How to Barbell Bent-Over Row
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Bend-over at the waist holding a barbell with your hands shoulder-width apart. Keep your chin level, back arched, and feet hip-width apart.
Slide your shoulder blades back and drive your elbows toward the sky, pulling the weights up to the side of your rib cage. Pause briefly in the up-position, and lower the weights to the starting position and repeat the movement for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
Be sure to engage your core to stabilize your spine. Focus on contracting your lower and middle back muscles throughout the movement.
- You should feel this working your posterior deltoids, back, arms, and lats.
