Back Exercises

Pendlay Row

Skill level: 
Body parts: 

The movement utilizes superstrict form, as your torso remains perfectly straight and parallel to the floor at all times. You’ll also return the bar to the floor after every repetition, as opposed to holding it above the floor as in the traditional style. So with the bar on the floor and your arms straight, you’ll adjust the bend in your hips and knees accordingly to get in perfect Pendlay position and keep that form throughout. (Yep, it’s brutal). We’re sure it’ll become one of your favorite exercises on back day.
