T-Bar Row

Pro Tip

To increase the range of motion and effectiveness of this movement, use smaller sized weight plates on the bar.

How To

  1. Stand over the bar with a flat back leaned forward slightly greater than parallel to the ground, with your arms extended underneath your shoulders.
  2. Grasping the bar close to the plate without touching the plate, exhale and row the bar upward by driving your elbows toward your back and squeezing your shoulder blades together.
  3. Continue raising the bar while tucking your elbows in until the plate stops you from bringing your arms back further, continuing to keep your torso and legs from moving.
  4. Inhale and lower the bar down by extending at your arms and allowing your shoulder blades to part, returning to the starting position.

Make sure to always use weight clips whenever you use a barbell, to prevent the plates from sliding off.
