Bent over row technique

Horrible view, but best I could do given busy platforms. Am I doing these right? I rowed in college so the motion is hardly new, just learning to do it for strength instead of endurance. (wfs)

Re: Bent over row technique

Honestly hard to tell from this angle except maybe you are craning your neck too much. Side view might be of more help.

Re: Bent over row technique

Yes, a profile or 3/4 angle would be a bit easier to read. That being said, it LOOKS like you're keeping your back in a neutral extended position which is from a safety perspective the most important part.

As Robert said, try to keep your head neutral, not over extended and finally, I would try to maintain a slightly more active upper back when your elbows are full extended.
