Back Exercises: Barbell Rows
Back Muscle Exercises

If you're looking for good back muscle exercises, then you should definitely consider adding barbell rows to your back workout.

You can use the overhand grip or the underhand grip.

This page has the pictures of the underhand grip barbell rows.

Many bodybuilders feel the barbell row is one of the best back exercises.

In addition to working on the back muscles, the barbell row improves your grip strength and core stabilizers.

Back Exercises: Barbell Rows

Starting Position: Begin by holding the bar with an underhand grip a little wider than shoulders width. Lift the barbell off the rack and step back. Hinge from the hips while keeping your back flat.

Form: Exhale and row the barbell up towards your belly button. Hold for a brief second and then slowly lower to the starting position.

Personal Trainer Tips: Move in a controlled manner so that momentum doesn't take over.

Be mindful of your posture. Don't let your back round.

The bent over barbell row is a classic bodybuilding move, and it is a great exercise for athletes. However, it is also an important exercise for regular people to master.

Many lower back injuries (muscle strains) occur when people are lifting heavy objects. Practicing the lifting motion can help to strengthen the lower back muscles and help to protect against injury.
