Upright row with close grip


Lock the sledge as low as possible. Attach the strap and insert the bar into the two loops.


With legs hip-width apart and upper body upright and stable, stand relatively far back. Hold the bar with an overhand grip – hands close together. Full body tension.


Pull the bar up close to the body to upper chest height.


Avoid creating momentum with upper and lower body, and ensure stable, straight neck position (avoid „vulture neck“!). If necessary, shorten the straps with a knot to have your arms straight when you start the exercise.
