Exercise The Right Way - Seated Pulley Rows


Other articles in this series looked at a number of exercises, mainly from the perspective of developing a comprehensive muscle building program. Sometimes we take things for granted, especially when it comes to performing the basic exercises that constitute the core of most bodybuilders' training regimes.

It is useful, therefore, to describe in detail the processes involved in actually doing these exercises. This will help beginners to start out using the correct techniques before moving on to potentially more dangerous heavy weights. If it also helps more experienced lifters to redress some of the little faults that have almost imperceptibly crept in over the years, all the better.

In this article we'll take a close look at Seated Pulley Rows.

MUSCLES TARGETED: latissimus dorsi, trapezius, rhomboids, erector spinae

STARTING POSITION

Grasp the handle with palms facing inward.

Straighten arms, sit on padding and place feet on the floor rests.

Maintain slightly bent knees.

Lean forward with head but keep back straight.

EXERCISE TECHNIQUE

Bring the torso to an erect position whilst pulling handle towards the abdomen.

Arch the back slightly and keep the elbows close to the torso.Return to the starting position.

Repeat this movement until the intended number of repetitions have been completed.

OTHER EXERCISES WORTH CONSIDERING

Another exercise worth considering is the T-Bar Row (additionally targets biceps brachialis but not trapezius muscles).
