Cable Incline Row

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on incline and place feet on lower bar, or foot platform. Slide hips down by bending knees. Bend over and grasp cable attachment. Slide hips back, positioning knees with slight bend.

Execution

Pull cable attachment to waist while straightening back upright. Pull shoulders back and push chest forward while arching back. Return until arms are extended, shoulders are stretched forward, and lower back is flexed forward. Repeat.

Comments

Begin with light weight and add additional weight gradually to allow lower back adequate adaptation. Do not pause or bounce at bottom of lift. Do not lower weight beyond mild stretch. Full range of motion through lower back will vary from person to person. See Cable Seated Row Question. Also see Cable Straight Back Incline Row and Dangerous Exercise Essay.
