The seated row is a pulling exercise that works the back muscles (latissimus dorsi) as well as forearm and upper arm muscles (biceps). Learn how to perform this popular strength building exercise with the team at Fitness Institute!

Machine: Hammer Strength Iso-Lateral Low Row

To begin, select appropriate seat height and weight. Take hold of handles and sit on seat with chest against the chest pad (Figure 1).

Slowly contract back muscles, pulling handles towards the chest (Figure 2). Ensure you maintain good spinal posture with feet flat on the floor for the entire movement. Slowly extend elbows to return to the start position.

Repeat for as many desired reps, controlling the weight when coming back down again.

Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
