Upright Rows: Barbell, Close Grip

from Allen Elliott

Hold loaded barbell in front of thighs with a very close, pronated-grip, inside shoulder width. Keeping a slight bend in elbows, use your side shoulders to lift the dumbbells as you exhale. Continue the lift, driving through your elbows until barbell is close to your chin. Pause briefly at the top, then slowly return to the starting position. Repeat this movement for all reps then re-rack weight.
