Overview

The bodyweight standing closegrip row is an exercise targeting the upper back, particularly the latissimus dorsi and rhomboids. It is a simple exercise that can be performed anywhere, and it is a great way to build strength and muscle mass in your back. To perform the bodyweight standing closegrip row, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms extended in front of you, holding a bar or two dumbbells in a close grip. Bend your knees slightly and hinge forward at the hips, keeping your back straight. Pull the bar or dumbbells towards your chest, squeezing your shoulder blades together at the top of the movement. Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position and repeat.
