The barbell upright row is a free weights exercise that primarily targets the shoulders.

The only upright row equipment that you really need is the following: barbell.

Step 1: Stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart.

Step 2: Grasp a barbell with your palms facing downward and your hands closer than shoulder width apart.

Step 3: Keep your arms extended downward with your elbows slightly bent so that the barbell is touching your upper legs. This is your starting position.

Step 4: Keeping the barbell close to your body, exhale and raise the barbell straight up to your chest.

Step 5: Hold for a moment and then reverse the motion back to the starting position.

Step 6: Repeat for 3-4 sets of 10-12 repetitions.
