Description

Like barbell bent over rows, the T bar row is a pure mass builder. This variation of the bent over row adds new angles and dimensions to this traditional movement making it an exciting and challenging exercise.

The main area exercised is the mid back and this exercise will help to strengthen and add thickness to this area.

Classified as a compound movement, secondary muscles include the rear shoulders (deltoids), and the biceps.

Most modern gyms will have T bar rowing stations. However, if you don't have one, try sticking one end of your bar into a corner and use a close grip chin up bar under the actual bar.
