How To: Seated Low Row (LF Cable)

How To: Seated Low Row (LF Cable)


What’s going on a Hermanation? I’m gonna demonstrate for you guys how to do a seated low row okay first thing you’re gonna do is adjust the weight to what you want to use for your exercise. And then I like to use the grip that allows me to have my hands close to each other So it needs a closed grip bar and if you notice they angle up towards each other so you can hold it this way or that way I prefer holding it so that it angles towards each other at the top, okay, and what you’re gonna do. Is you’re gonna sit down you’re gonna put your feet up here Okay, you’re gonna come out so that you have a slight bend in your knees you maintain a neutral spine and then what you’re gonna, do is you’re gonna make sure your shoulders are down your chest is out and you’re maintaining an arch of your back, okay? And by doing this it’s going to allow you to keep your shoulder blades pinched throughout the whole exercise and what you want to do is pull your hands to your torso now once there, squeeze everything nice and tight and then keep everything nice and tight squeeze in your back. As you come forward and then come out to a 90 degree angle, okay? You’re not going to come to a full extension pull back and breathe out Come forward to 90 degrees, back and breathe out That’s how you do it seated low row For more great information feel free to subscribe to my channel and as always more good stuff coming to. Later guys

    seems like very little range of motion, I like to get a little more bang for my buck so I do lean forward a bit so that when I sit back up straight I work my lower back, I also believe in full range of motion so I extend my arms all the way forward, of course I am not swinging because I am finally old enough to not use too much weight like 90% of most people at the gym, lol, thank you for the video, right or wrong you look amazing so to all the haters he has to be doing something right

    Thanks, I wasn't sure on how to do this and I didn't want to confront my instructors about it because they already told me how to do it.

    Honestly i've had frustration with this work out because of not feeling the activation in my back but after performing the exercises like how he is demonstrating. It did activate the muscles in my back.

    I was told not to arch my back. I should have stuck with my form. Now, that I know it is right

    What i love about my gym is that people actually care for each other's safety. I remembered being new and straight up dipping really badly, and a nice lady came over and showed me the right way. Everyone's ego is at the entrance and the atmosphere there really says it

    I have trained for 25 years and to this day I never see anyone teaching how to do this correctly and this guy is just another in a long line of doing only half the movement. The seated cable row is a "row" and you should do so when performing the movement. Keeping the back straight and upright is mostly biceps and forearms. You must let the weight pull you forward and stretch the lats to the point of placing the head between the arms and pulling back (not with the lower back) but with the teres major and contracting hard at the top. You will only injure your lower back in this manner if you are using a stupid amount of weight, but the drop in weight is worth it because you will be working the teres major through a full range of motion and letting the muscle do what it is designed to do.

    >>>ur2.pl/1147 Great workout as long as you're consistent.The front panel comes with all kinds of settings and "Games" – it's great! I will warn you it is heavy and large! Like… really long.. and while you can disconnect the 2 parts at the hinge, it's still pretty bulky.

    This guy is right. This form is correct. It protects the lumbar spine from injury by bracing the shoulders down and back just like you should do when squatting, deadlifting, bench pressing, or any variation of a bent over rows. If you want a "stretch in your lats" like so many of you are saying, then do pullups all the way down on the negative part of the rep. Go slow on the negative. Yes, Arnold, and Ronnie Coleman and others go all the way forward, and I can't tell you why they haven't messed up their backs, but the right way to do this is in this video. The dangerous part of this exercise is getting into position with the weight while maintaining a neutral spine. You almost have to leg press it out while bracing upright until you have slid back into a position with knees slightly bent. The same goes for putting the weight down. This a good instructional video from a trainer that is trying to teach people how to protect their spine, and learn a very basic, but critical lesson about packing shoulders down and back. Nobody with any sense would do bent over rows with a rounded back so why on Earth would you do this exercise with a rounded back. SMH.

    I love how your videos are short and to the point. I see videos 6-12 minutes long for a 30 second answer

    Some dude told me to pull it to my chest like WTF. Of course I was being nice and did 2 reps than went back to proper form.

    @0:56, your back is not supposed to be like that. Focus on moving your shoulder blades together and keep your arms tucked in. Don’t let ur back look like it does at 0:56. The pic in the thumbnail is as far as it should go.

    Most people I see doing this exercise go waaaay too heavy and throw their entire body into it, while their neck muscles look like they are going to explode lol…meaning the are definitely not isolating their lats and mid back, and losing the whole purpose of the exercise. Not to mention putting themselves at serious risk of injury. I see it with a lot of exercises actually…egos defeating the purpose of exercises. If they didn't look like such ANGRY people, I would politely tell them they are doing them completely wrong lol.

    One thing that was explained to me about back excercies, whether rows, or lat pulldowns, was to not pull with your arms, but rather to think of your hands as hooks and your back muscles are doing the pulling

    He is doing it wrong he is not even stretching his back muscle he should lean a bit forward to make his back muscle stretch …

    Hey Scott, great job on this video! I really like the fact that you demo'd not only form, but various grips as well for the exercise.

    I only listen to athleanx, and Scott. Team natural. I don't have time for ego lifters that can't do without their main ingredient.
