Barbell Deadlift Bent Row Complex

The barbell deadlift bent-over row complex combines two movements to target the posterior chain. It requires using a lighter weight than you could handle for heavy deadlifts alone, but doubles down on activation in the upper back, lower back, and glutes.


  1. Strengthens and builds the hamstrings, glutes, and lower and upper back
  2. Teaches coordination and moving the body as one unit
  3. Adds a cardiovascular and conditioning challenge to strength work
