Are Upright Rows Safe – Q&A

As a final note, I would suggest doing the movement either with a rope handle (off a cable stack) or with dumbbells. The wrists tend to get a bit cocked using a barbell so even if the movement doesn’t bug your shoulder, it can jack up your wrists. And, of course, if doing upright rows even in the above fashion still bugs your shoulders, drop the movement. As I said up above, movements can only generally be rated as safe or unsafe for a given individual under a given set of circumstances. If a movement causes pain, it’s not a good one for you.
