T-Bar Row

Great exercise for the lats.


Row, row, row
Row, row, row.
This is a great exercise for the lats. I generally do this in a power rack (the home gym isn't big enough to do it anywhere else), with the barbell sitting across the pins at their lowest setting.

Straddling the bar - and standing close to the weights at one end - lift the bar using both hands. Keep the elbows tucked in and bring the plates toward your chest.

I like to partner these with chin-ups, which also keep the lats warmed up.

Hot, Damn Hot.I think several years (6 in total) of living in the UK has lowered my idea of just what a hot day is. Much of the past two weeks has been above 30°C (86°F), and I find myself drowning in sweat much earlier in the workouts. Time to switch to evening workouts I think.
