Cable Wide Grip Seated Row

Instructions

Preparation

Sit slightly forward on platform and grasp cable attachment with wider than shoulder width grip. Slide hips back positioning knees with slight bend.

Execution

Pull cable attachment to waist while straightening lower back. 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 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 Wide Grip Straight Back Seated Row and Dangerous Exercise Essay.
