How to Do T-Bar Rows

  1. Stand on the plate, lean forward, and grasp the bar with an overhand grip in straight arms.
  2. Inhale and pull the bar towards you as high as possible.
  3. With control, lower the bar back to the starting position.


T-bar rows is a variant of standing rows where the weight and bar path is fixed. That lessens the requirements of balance and stabilization, and can make it easier to focus on the muscles being trained.
