How do you make an upright row?

The upper back muscles can sometimes be neglected during exercise because they are out of sight, out of mind. It is impossible to see this set of muscles without a mirror and it can be difficult to train them. This is where the upright row, or standing row, comes into play. It’s a great upper body move to complement other exercises like lat pulldowns, pushups, and chest presses.

Neglect this exercise at your own risk. Well-developed traps (trapezius) are important for maintaining aesthetic balance, but will also help you perform various types of exercises, such as squats, deadlifts and the military press.
