Upright row push outs

This… Is… Killer.

Seriously, I was grunting and groaning during my superset with dumbbell up and backs.

TIPS

  1. Before starting, push your chest out and shoulders back. Use a wide grip on the barbell. Keep your shoulders down.
  2. When you row the bar, make sure you keep your traps (the muscle between your shoulders and neck) soft and down. Think about trying to touch your elbows together behind your back. Squeeze.
  3. Keeping your chest out, push the bar straight out in front of you, ensuring it is on a level plane – straight out from your body. Shoulders down and back.
  4. Return to the starting position by slowly lowering the bar. Control the movement, don’t rush it!
