Barbell Row

Personal Trainer Amanda Shrader demonstrates the Barbell Row. This compound movement targets the lats, traps, rhomboids, and rear deltoids while also engaging the biceps.

1. Hold barbell with overhand grip with hands about shoulder-width apart. Pull shoulder blades back and bend over in a hinged position at the hips so your torso is nearly parallel to the floor.




2. Pull the bar toward your hips, keeping your elbows tight to the sides of your body. When pulling bar toward your body, squeeze shoulder blades at the top of the motion before returning to starting position. This is one rep.
