Would you suggest using ez-curl bar though?

This is really useful. Not a lot of people address this. I have tried to love upright barbell rows but between shoulder and elbow pain I gave up.

However, light dumbbell upright rows are pain free and really give me a nice feel between the shoulders and traps.

Perfectly fine for me,

Infact my shoulders always lagged behind and didn't start catching up until I added these and heavy.

I can upright row more than I can military press for whatever reason too.

I'm really glad that this topic came up.

I've been performing upright rows using weight plates. I love the free-flowing movement and it's way easier on my wrists than a bar.



Like Lyle's article states, I only come up to the point where my upper arms are parallel with the ground.

Now if I could only find a way not to make a funny face while doing this exercise I would be even happier

If your hands were further apart, you'd be using more deltoids and less biceps.
