adduction is the movement of a limb towards the center of the body, while abduction is the movement of the limb away from the body.
not sure how the barbell squat would be classified (if it even can be).
on the db row, your scapula moves toward the center of the body so i'd say adduction (though it really would be classified as retraction).
for the upright row, the scapula moves away from the center of the body in an upward rotation, so for that I'd say abduction."To close one's eyes will not ease another's pain" - Chinese Proverb

Ok, not sure if anyone else cares, but if they do.
Starting from squatted position, the hips move towards the center of the body, therefore making an adduction movement.
Let me know if any disagreement here
Ps this was something i needed for class, not just completely random"Don't cry because you want to quit, cry because you keep going so hard it hurts. When you want to succeed as bad as u want to breath, THEN you will be successful"
