One of your basic back exercises, alongside pull-ups and pulley exercises, excellent for adding amplitude, density and thickness to the back of your torso.
HOW TO DO EXERCISE
Standing upright, place your feet shoulder-width apart, bend forwards with your back upright, face forward and hands hip-width apart, holding the barbell slightly over the ground; first, you breathe in, then you pull the barbell towards you until your elbows get behind the line of your back in the final position, whereas the barbell is close to your waist. Then let go slowly back to the starting point, always controlling the barbell.
DURING THIS EXERCISE
Your hamstrings (back of your thighs) should be relaxed and your knees loose, so as to avoid cramp or even tearing of the fibres in those areas.
