Execution

Comments

If two high pulleys are available use opposite pulley as exercised arm. If pulley is far enough away, it is optional to bend lower back forward during stretch and pull it upright during contraction. See Cable One Arm Seated High Row. Hamstrings and Gluteus Maximus become stabilizers if seated on bench with feet propped forward with no upper leg support.
