Target Muscles: Back
Instructions: Put weight on one end of a long barbell. It is helpful to put something at the other end of the barbell on the ground so it can not slide backward. Straddle the bar and bend forward until torso is as close to parallel with the floor as you can go. Keep your knees slightly bent. Hold bar just behind plates with both hands. Pull bar straight up with your elbows in until the plates touch your lower chest. Lower bar slowly to starting position. Do not let the plates touch the floor at the bottom. You can get a better range of motion by using many small plates rather than one big plate. Keep your back straight and head up!
