the floor when performing the t bar rows workout.
T-bar rows is an
upper back muscle's exercise, you are not supposed to do much lifting
with the lower back or legs. If you find you are not able to the t bar
rows lift without swaying and lifting up with your back to an excessive
degree, you are simply putting too much weight and should take off a
plate or two. However, a small amount of movement is inevitable. But be
sure to keep your back straight or even slightly arched and never to
bend over hunchback fashion, which could result in injury.

narrow grip, T bar rows exercise will work mostly the outer lats because
you cannot get the range of motion to fully involve the inner back
muscles. However, the limited range of motion of t-bar rows means that
you will eventually be able to lift more weight than when doing barbell
