Bent Over Barbell Row Exercise

Barbell Row Exercise for Back Muscle

Performed with a barbell, this exercise is targeted for the upper back.


Barbell Row Technique & Execution

  • Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, grasp the barbell with an overhand grip
  • Bend your knees slightly, and bend forward
  • Keep your back straight, and head up looking forward, and let the weight hang at arm's length below you
  • Using your back muscles, pull the weight upward toward your abdominals
  • Then lower back to starting point

When performing barbell rows, ensure your back is straight, and when pulling the weight up, avoid using your lower back to isolate the lats. Pull the weight toward your abs, not your chest.

Dumbbell Row Exercises

Bent Over Two Arm Dumbbell Row Exercise

The difference between bent over dumbbell row and barbell row is that you work the upper back independently using two dumbbells. You can still use relatively heavy weights with dumbbells but you are forcing the two sides of your body to work on its own.

Two Arm Dumbbell Row Technique & Execution

  • Holding a dumbbell in each hand, bend your knees slightly with your upper body bent forward
  • Keep your head up looking forward and start off with the weights hanging at arm's length
  • Lift up the weights as high up as possible on your two sides
  • Then lower the weights back down to starting position

One Arm Dumbbell Row

Unlike the two arm dumbbell row, the one arm dumbbell row exercise is performed one arm at a time, which allows you to use a much heavier weight. This back exercise also works the two sides of the back independently, but allowing the usage of a heavier weight.

  • Keep your body steady, lift the dumbbell up as high as possible to your side
