Easy Exercise of the Week: Upright Cable Row

Beef up your shoulders with this simple but effective exercise.


  • Grab a straight bar cable attachment that is attached to a low pulley with a palms-facing-your-thighs-grip that is slightly less than shoulder width. The bar should be resting on top of your thighs. Your arms should be extended with a slight bend at the elbows and your back should be straight. This will be your starting position.
  • The bar should be close to the body as you move it up. Continue to lift it until it nearly touches your chin. Make sure to keep your torso stationary and pause for a second at the top of the movement.
  • Lower the bar back down slowly, exhaling as you do and then repeat for whatever amount of reps you desire.
