Seated Cable Rows Part 1 – Neutral Grip

Seated Cable Rows Part 1-Neutral Grip

Seated rows with neutral grip is a shoulder friendly exercise that builds a  super strong back.

Sit tall on the bench, feet flat on the foot plate. 

Start with your arms fully extended and shoulders away from your ears

 Initiate the pull from your back as opposed to pulling from the elbows

Squeeze your shoulder blades 

Want to make this harder?  You can always add more weight, but you can also add a 2-3 second pause, and/or a slow eccentric 

Tip: I try to not have a death grip on the handle-sends a lot of tension up through my elbows.  Instead, I don’t grip as hard and really focus on engaging my back as the initiator of the movement
