Exercise Demo: T-Bar Row Posted July 24th, 2013 by Admin . Alternative Exercises: Incline Dumbbell Row 6 Comments Renee says: October 11, 2017 at 4:50 am Im too short (arms) to pick up the bar on this exercise alone, what alternative is there?

Put an olympic size barbell in a corner, straddle it and lift up the other end facing out away from the corner.

I will try some alternatives tonight. Log in to reply Nicole says: January 13, 2019 at 4:44 pm You could place the cable at the bottom and use a close grip. Pull the handle toward your stomach.
