How to do the Seated Row
To begin the seated row take hold of the handles of your favorite bar (it could be like the one shown). Sit with your back straight while keeping your legs bent and feet against the metal block. Extend your arms feeling your lats stretch. Pull the weight back into your body until the handles touch your abdomen. Seated rows are a staple in any back workout.
Make sure to bring your shoulder blades as far back as you can and keep your back straight.
Seated Row Spotter Information:
Spotting the seated row can be done either by pulling the cable down (standing), or kneel and push the weight. This exercise is fairly difficult to spot.
