Cable Rear Delt Row

Instructions

Preparation

Sit slightly forward on bench or platform. Grasp cable bar attachment with elbow width overhand grip. Straighten lower back upright and slide hips back so knees are slightly bent.

Execution

Pull cable attachment toward upper chest, just below kneck, with elbows up out to sides until elbows travel slightly behind back. Keep upper arms horizontal, perpendicular to trunk. Return until arms are extended and shoulders are stretched forward. Repeat.

Comments

Elbow width is determined when elbows are raise at height of shoulders out to sides. The relatively powerful Latissimus Dorsi becomes involved:
  • if upper arm travels closer than perpendicular to trunk
  • if torso is positioned forward beyond vertical
Elbows should be kept same height as shoulders when approaching upper chest.
Much lighter resistance is required as Cable Seated Row.
