PERSONAL TRAINER INSTRUCTION :
Square off your shoulders to the cable in front. While keeping an upright position with a neutral spine, exhale and pull the cable handle back with both hands. Focus on pulling through the elbow to activate the muscles of the back.
Keep your shoulders depressed and the forearm parallel to the floor. Avoid leaning forward or backwards too much through the exercise. Use the muscles of your back and arms to pull the weight, not your entire torso leaning. Do not twist with this exercise.
There are different variations that can be done with your hand positioning through the movement such as having your palm up (supinated) or palm down (pronated). Feel free to try and see what you like best. Also consider using different attachments. For the low row, using the “machine gun handle” is the preferred option. If you struggling keeping your balance, sit a little lower into a squat during the exercise.
