Upright Rows: Barbell, Behind Back

from Allen Elliott

Adjust loaded bar to a rack, with starting position slightly below hip level. Facing away from the bar reach back behind you with a supinated-grip with hands shoulder-width apart. Lift bar from rack and into position. Slowly pull the weight up pointing your elbows behind you. When you have reached the highest range of motion, return slowly to below hip level. Repeat this range of motion for all reps, then re-rack bar.
