  • T Bar Rows is an excellent exercise for middle and outer back muscles.
  • This is upper back exercise so you should avoid lifting with your lower back or legs.
  • Lift the weight to an excessive degree with your back and without swaying.
  • If you're not able to do that then your weight is too much, take off a plate or two.
  • If you use a narrow grip this exercise will work mostly the outer lats.
  • To avoid an injury keep your back straight or even slightly arched.
  • With this limited motion you will be able to lift more than when doing barbell rows.
