Upright Row (Cable Indy Arm)

Target Muscles: Anterior and Medial deltoids, Trapezius, Biceps, Brachioradialis Starting Position: 1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. 2. Hold the barbell with your hands about 15 cm apart, palms facing towards your body. The bar should rest against the front of your thighs. The Movement: 1. Pull the bar directly upwards towards your chin, bending your elbows out to the sides until the bar is level with your neck. 2. Hold for a count of two; then slowly lower the bar back to the starting position. Tips: • Keep the bar very close to your body throughout the movement. • Make sure you do not sway backwards as you lift the bar. • At the top of the movement your elbows should be level with, or slightly higher than, your hands. • Lower the bar slowly, resisting the weight. Variations: Wide grip: Using a shoulder width grip, places more emphasis on the deltoids and less on the trapezius.
