Workout 101: Upright Rows
Here's the 'how-to" on executing this workout!
- Begin in the standing position with your feet shoulder with apart. Grasp the bar with an overhand grip that is less than shoulder-width apart. Grasp the bar with a slight bend of the elbows and the bar should rest on your thighs. Keep your core tight, back straight and shoulder back for posture.
- Proceed then lift the bar with the sides of your shoulders, raising your elbows up and keeping the bar close to your body as it moves upward. Continue to lift the bar until it reaches chin level.
- Lower the bar back down to the starting position. Remember to hold your posture and keep your core tight. The only part of your body that should be moving will be your arms and shoulders.
