Pendlay Row Instructions
Begin each repetition with the barbell dead on the ground. Take a medium, pronated grip on the bar just in front of you. Your torso should be parallel to the ground with your lower back arched and knees partially bent. Begin with your shoulders protracted and your thoracic spine partially flexed. Your cervical spine should be neutral. This will be your starting position. Initiate the pull by extending your thoracic spine as you flex the elbow, attempting to pull the weight into your abdomen as quickly as possible. Focus on squeezing your shoulders back as you perform the movement, retracting your shoulder blades. There should be no movement at the hips or knees, and strict technique should be utilized. Return the weight to the ground between repetitions.
