Upright Rows

Primary Muscle Group: Back

Instructions

Choose a barbell and grasp it with an overhand grip, hands a little wider than shoulder width apart.  Let the bar hang down at arm’s length in front of you.  Now bent over slightly and back straight lift the bar straight up to a point just below the chest, where your elbows are at a 90 degree angle.  As you lift, keep your elbows out and up higher than the bar.  Then lower the bar back to the starting position.
