Bent Over Barbell Row – Back Exercise – Bodybuilding.com


Start by gripping a barbell
with the palms of your hands facing down. Bend your knees slightly
and bring your torso forward. While keeping your back
straight, bend at the waist until it’s almost
parallel to the floor. Keep your head up, as well. The barbell should hang directly
in front of you, as your arms will be hanging perpendicular
to the floor and your torso. This is your starting position. Now, while keeping your torso
stationary, breathe out and lift the barbell toward you. Keep your elbows close to your
body, and only use your forearms to hold the weight. At the top contracted position,
squeeze the back muscles and hold for a brief pause. Then inhale and slowly
lower the barbell back to the starting position.

  1. Surely a more strict row movement, like Pendley rows, would be a much more effective mid back exercise?? Pendleys also eliminate trap involvement and are far kinder to your lower back….
    Just my opinion but I think rowing like this is incorrect.

  2. BORs > Pendlay Rows.

    Pendlay rows should use more of your mid back (mid/low traps + rhomboids) because you are parallel to the ground and are forcefully contracting the back. But, the TUT is much greater with BORs.

    You will notice later on when you go heavy with BORs or Pendlays that BORs do not strain the lower back as much. Plus rows done parallel to the floor with no deloading of the weight = best for mass.

  3. I really love this clip. Like Youtube because of this type of content!My homeboy used to be bullied. He said he was intending to get bigger muscle and strength. I did not believe him. Then within weeks he packed on 40lbs of complete muscle. He tried the Muscle Building Bible – look for it in Google. He does not get bullied these days. 🙂 I subscribed earlier this week. See what will happen. Not to mention the mans emails are awesome…

  4. It would be a shame for you not to get ripped when other normal people get ripped so easily with Max Muscle Booster (check it out on Google).

  5. If you have been trying to build muscle, you should search Google for "Max Muscle Extend". That might help you get the body you deserve.

  6. They laughed when I told them I was going to build muscle with "H6x Muscle Monster", but then they saw the results. Do a search on Google for H6x Muscle Monster to see their reaction. (It was epic!)

  7. If you want to bulk up and get ripped, you should definitely make a search on Google for "SSM Muscle Method". You are certain to get the muscles you deserve.
