How to Do Standing Upright Row With Barbell
Standing upright row with barbell should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the standing upright rows with barbell.
Beginning Upright Row With Barbell
1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart; grasp bar at shoulder width, or slightly wider (NOTE: Taking a narrow grip will increase internal rotation/protraction at the shoulder girdle, thereby increasing stress to the back cuff).
2. Maintain a neutral spine.
Upright Row With Barbell Movement

2. Return to start position at desired rep tempo.
Upright Row With Barbell Benefits
Standing upright rows are an excellent exercise for increasing the size and strength of the shoulders' muscles, particularly the anterior and lateral heads of the deltoid. This is crucial for lifters aiming to increase deltoid size and strength for pressing activities or general growth.
