- Lie chest down on elevated bench. Grasp bar with wide overhand
- Keeping upper arm perpendicular to torso, pull barbell up
toward upper chest until upper arms are just beyond parallel
to floor. Return and repeat.
- If upper arm travels closer than perpendicular to trunk,
becomes involved. Elbows should be raised directly lateral to
shoulders. Bench should be just high enough to prevent barbell
from hitting floor and close to horizontal. Lying at 45°
is not sufficient angle to target rear deltoids. Much lighter
resistance is required as Cambered
Bar Lying Row.
