I am aware of the debate on the dangers of upright barbell rows and I acknowledge both sides. The fact of the matter is that it is a great compound exercise but a huge bummer is that it deserves almost perfect form to be safely executed. That being said, no one can ignore the mess of damage it could do to your shoulder.
Many people, came up with the idea that if they switch to say dumbbell it at least prevent you from internally rotating your shoulder and locking it in place due to the barbell. I don't know if dumbbells really do help with the shoulder issue but hey it's a potential idea.
My main concern is resistance bands and if they help or not. Due to quarantine, I have been trying to rep out my workout using resistance band only and upright band rows seemed like a tempting exercise to try out. I was thinking if it's a safer alternative to say barbell or is the effect on the shoulders the same. Any answers or response would help!
Thanks in advance.
