🔥 T BAR ROWS
✅ In my opinion, a great overall back muscles builder that allows for progressive overload. Just like any other back exercise, depression & retraction of the scapula (pulling them down and back) will play maaaaajor key.
✅ For the set up, I’d personally suggest to always using smaller plates (5/10kg ones) since their smaller diameter will allow greater range of motion.
The set up: Hinge at the hips, pushing them back while maintaining your chest up, sitting strong and stable, approximately at a 45 degrees angle.
✅ When it comes to performing the exercise, after setting up the proper scapuar position before each rep, pulling through the elbows while maintaining a neutral spine and NOT using momentum will be the most important things to keep in mind.
✅ I know it feels good and probably attracts many eyes when the bar is stacked with plates, but I promise that people will be able to tell whether you’re fueling your ego or your muscles with this exercise. Don’t fool yoursef. Don’t cheat.
