Seated Row with Cable Pulley

  1. Sit on the bench of the cable pulley system and carefully reach for the wide or narrow V-bar which is clipped to the cable pulley.
  2. Place feet on foot plate, knees remain bent, and sit up very straight, chest up, shoulders down.
  3. Begin with arms extended in front of chest and pull V-bar into chest, using mid back muscles.
  4. Consciously squeeze shoulder blades together as V-bar comes into chest and elbows draw behind the back.
  5. Without bending at the low back, slowly release V-bar back to start and repeat.

Tip: Be careful not to bend the low back or rock your body to move the weight.

Variation: This exercise can also be done using a single handle attachment so that only one arm is rowing at a time.
