Cable Standing Rear Delt Row (with rope)

Instructions

Preparation

Stand facing rope attachment on high pulley cable. Grasp each end of rope just above enlarged ends. Step back with one foot so arms and shoulders are positioned straight forward with cable taut. Point elbows outward.

Execution

Pull rope to upper chest or neck, keeping elbows at shoulder height until elbows travel slightly behind back. Keep upper arms perpendicular to trunk. Return until arms are extended forward. Repeat.

Comments

The relatively powerful Latissimus Dorsi becomes involved:
  • if upper arm travels closer than perpendicular to trunk
  • if torso is positioned forward beyond vertical
Also see movement with stirrup cable attachments.
