Row Training with Coach David Alexander

Visit for more strength & conditioning tips.

This is a unique kind of barbell row. The gym I train at (Xtreme Fitness San Juan Island) has a t-bar row but the receiving end for the weights is too small. I would need to put on 45’s and then the range of motion will suffer. So this was my solution. I put on 35’s so I can add weight and still get a good range of motion. I needed to weight one side of the barbell or it would rise off the ground (see in video). I do this lift once a week and add 5 pounds every time. Have fun! Coach David Alexander
