Bent Over Barbell Row

The barbell bent-over row is a compound exercise used to build strength and size in both the lower and upper back. It targets nearly all of the muscles in the back, but particularly the lats, rhomboids, and lower back. It is commonly utilized as an accessory movement for the deadlift in powerlifting, but is also popular in strength and muscle-focused upper-body workouts.

Benefits

  2. Strengthens the lats, rhomboids, spinal erectors, hamstrings, and glutes
  3. Teaches proper ab bracing and spinal position
  4. Can be loaded more heavily than other row variations
