How To Perform the Yates Row

  1. Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold a barbell with an underhand grip, hands slightly wider than shoulder-width.
  2. Keep your torso at a 30-45 degree angle to the floor, maintaining a slight arch in your lower back.
  3. Pull the barbell towards your lower abdomen, squeezing your shoulder blades together at the top of the movement.
  4. Lower the barbell back to the starting position in a controlled manner.
  5. Exhale as you lift the barbell and inhale as you lower it.
