Weekly Training Tip #14 - Barbell Row

Targeted muscles: rear deltoids, rhomboids, latissimus dorsi, and traps.

The movement is a great way to increase volume and stimulate strength to the upper back. When setting up, it is important to keep braced and not allow your torso to raise during the pull to the chest. This ensures the targeted musculature are receiving enough overload to produce the desired adaptations. If we start raising our torso, we begin to use undesired muscles to move the bar. Technique and range of motion are more important than the weight the athlete is moving. Barbell row is suitable for all athletes and all age groups if the individual athletes are able to lift the barbell with correct technique.
