Standing Back Row with Curl Bar

Area Targeted: Outer Back

Experience the power of engaging your Lats during a rowing exercise with the Standing Two Arm Back Row using Resistance Tube Bands. This exercise isolates and targets the Lats (your V-Taper or Wing Back muscles) like no other. Combine it with the Bodylastics Curl Bar and perform this exercise multiple times a week to rapidly build impressive back strength and width!

Learn set-up, movements and points to remember below:

Set Up

Anchor: Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at chest height

Bands: Thread the band(s) through the anchor and attach each end of the band(s) to an outer ring of the bar.

Body Positioning: Grip the bar with each hand, shoulders width apart, palms facing up. Stand 3 to 4 feet from the door while facing the door. Keep your head straight, your chest up, and a slight bend in your legs. Your arms should be straight out in front of you (forearms parallel to the floor.)


Pull the bar until your hands are by the middle of your abdomen. Return to the starting position (controlling the resistance). Repeat.

Points To Remember

1. Hold the bar with a loose grip.
2. Squeeze your shoulder blades together as you pull the handles back.
3. Your arms should be tight to your body as you pull.
