Barbell Rows (Technique tips)

Back Rows can be an amazing exercise for targeting upper and lower back muscles. Let's take a look at how Jasmine is doing them. 
1)  The reverse-grip bent-over row is a compound exercise used to build strength and size in both the lower and upper back. It targets nearly all of the muscles in the back, but particularly the lats, rhomboids, and lower back. 
2) Notice she starts with a flat back at the bottom, her shoulders are completely disengaged and almost drooping forward. This is what you want. As she pulls the bar back and up, she slightly raises her back up and focuses on the squeeze in between the shoulder blades. 
3) Pulling the bar straight up will engage more biceps and shoulder versus using the back as the primary mover. Pulling the bar back towards your pockets and belly button allows you to engage the back muscles.
4) Remember to breathe and keep your core engaged the entire time. We recommend taking SEND IT 30 minutes prior to lifting. The nootropic ingredients in the formula will help you with the mind muscle connection. This way you can ensure you are using your back muscles rather than arms and shoulders to complete the exercise.
