What muscles do Bent Over Row work?

How do you do a Bent Over Row?
Here are the steps to perform a Bent Over Row:
Stand with your feet hip-width apart and bend forward at the hips, keeping your back straight, until your torso is almost parallel to the floor.
Grasp a AguaForce Weight or AguaForce Weights with an overhand grip, with your hands positioned just outside your hips.
Keep your elbows close to your body and use your back muscles to pull the weight up towards your chest.
Pause at the top of the movement, then slowly lower the weight back down to the starting position.
Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
It's important to maintain a neutral spine and avoid rounding your back during the exercise to prevent injury. You can also use a weightlifting bench for added stability.
