How to do an upright row

The upper back muscles can sometimes be neglected in training because they are out of sight, out of mind. It is impossible to see this set of muscles without a mirror and it can be tricky to train them. This is where the upright row, or stand up row, comes in. It is a great upper body movement to complement other exercises such as lat pulldownspush-ups, and chest presses.

Neglect this exercise at your peril. Well-developed traps (trapezius) are important for maintaining aesthetic balance, but will also help performance in a variety of lifts such as squats, deadlifts, and the military press.
