What is upright row?

Upright row

  1. Pass the band under your feet and stand straight with your hands at your sides. (If you're sitting, pass the band under your buttocks.) Keep equal lengths of the band on each side.
  2. Hold one side of the band in each hand, with your knuckles on top of the band, not under it. Adjust the band so you have some tension on it. If you don't have a band, hold a 1- to 2-pound weight in each hand. You can use dumbbells, cans of food, or filled water bottles for weights.
  3. With your shoulders relaxed, lift your hands to the level of your armpits. Keep your elbows out to your sides and lower than your shoulders.
  4. Slowly return to your starting position.
  5. Repeat 8 to 12 times.
