TRAINING PROGRAMS ARE OFTEN INCLUSIVE OF EXERCISES DESIGNED TO ACHIEVE STRENGTH AND HYPERTROPHY OF THE MIDDLE DELTOIDS AND UPPER TRAPEZIUS. THE “UPRIGHT ROW” IS ONE OF THE MORE COMMON EXERCISES PERFORMED; HOWEVER, ITS EXECUTION IS NOT WITHOUT RISK, PARTICULARLY IN THE POPULATION WITH DOCUMENTED SHOULDER DISORDERS, SUCH AS SUBACROMIAL IMPINGEMENT. IMPLICATIONS SPECIFIC TO THE UPRIGHT ROW EXERCISE ARE DISCUSSED IN THIS COLUMN AS WELL AS MODIFICATIONS APPLICABLE TO BOTH THE SYMPTOMATIC AND THE… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

Characteristics of Shoulder Impingement in the Recreational Weight-Training Population
TLDR
Results suggest that WT participants may be predisposed to SIS, and avoiding performance of lateral deltoid raises and upright rows beyond an angle of 90° and efforts to strengthen the external rotators may serve as a useful means to mitigate characteristics associated with SIS. Expand
Exercise Modification Strategies to Prevent and Train Around Shoulder Pain
TLDR
A summary of the literature related to shoulder pain in strength athletes is provided and strategies to reduce the risk of shoulder injuries will be addressed. Expand
Ultrasound evaluation of the subacromial space in healthy subjects performing three different positions of shoulder abduction in both loaded and unloaded conditions.
BACKGROUND Subacromial space (SS) narrowing may result in unsafe contact of rotator cuff tendons and bursa with the acromion, possibly promoting rotator cuff pathologies and pain. We measured SS inExpand
Effect of Grip Width on Electromyographic Activity During the Upright Row
TLDR
The main findings of this investigation are increased deltoid and trapezius activity with increasing grip width, and correspondingly less BB activity in the upright row, and those who seek to maximize involvement of the del toid and Trapezius muscles during the URR should use a wide grip. Expand
The Potential Dangers of Using Rapid Weight Loss Techniques
TLDR
A wide range of approaches to weight loss techniques that can be harmful to patients' health and long-term success are considered. Expand
Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy
TLDR
This chapter discusses the role of resistance trainingVariables in Hypertrophy Volume Frequency Load Exercise Selection Type of Muscle Action Rest Interval Length Repetition Duration Exercise Order Range of Motion Intensity of Effort. Expand

TLDR
The data demonstrate that exercise has statistically and clinically significant effects on pain reduction and improving function, but not on range of motion or strength. Expand
