“The EZ Bar Upright Row helps target the deltoid and trapezius muscles.” Coach Heeson is taking us through the best way to safely perform this exercise.
To begin, grasp a barbell with an overhand grip that is slightly less than shoulder width. As you exhale, keep the bar close to your body. Raise the bar straight up until it almost touches your chin, and your elbows are flared out to the sides. Finally, lower the bar back down slowly to the starting position.
As an alternative, you can perform this exercise with a straight bar attached to a low pulley. For those who are very familiar with this move, it can also be performed using dumbbells.
