Precautions and Tips for Barbell Bent Over Row

You can try out different head positions to see which works best. The Barbell bent over row can be done with the head straight looking forward or while packing the neck.

Hold your abs tone as you pull the bar up to avoid arching your spine too much.

The bar should move throughout the exercise under your control, not by momentum or gravity.

Do NOT let your head jut forward, and glide your shoulder blade on your rib cage while pulling on the bar.
