Trust my coach @benperformancecoach
to create a new move on the seated rows 🤩! Here I'm doing with a supinated wide grip (still getting used to it) and to get more stretched I placed 2 big dumbbells at the foothold.Variation for Building sexy back yo!! SWIPE And read below to see how he originally did it with close grip. Try it and tell me how it goes. ☺
& explanation from Ben.
Here’s another row variation on the seated row.
Often machines are fixed in their trajectory. While this can be good for isolating a particular movement pattern, it also takes out the ability to zone-in on other areas which you might want to focus on. This is where we need to be creative but effective in targeting the desired muscle/s.
With this exercise here, I move my body with the pull to intensify the muscular recruitment in the lower inner insertions of my lats giving it as @coacheugeneteo
likes to call it – a ‘delicious pump😋!’
At the top of the movement, I make an effort of fully protract and extend my lats, stretching it maximally from the insertion and the origin. You can see the tension building across across the muscle fibers from each rep performed.
As I row back, I then intentionally do the opposite - dropping my body and lean backwards to now retract and contract the lats maximally from the insertion and the origin.
. 🐂Sure, it might look like I’m riding a mechanical bull in slow motion but don’t dismiss the effectiveness of the exercise just yet, especially when it maximally engages fibers from both ends of the targeted muscle with a single rep. .
