SEATED CABLE ROW

Would you like to improve your posture?
Do you find that your Shoulders are rounded?
Or maybe you are looking to increase Upper Back muscle?

If so, then the Seated Cable Row is the exercise for you!

The Cable Row is a fantastic exercise as it uses so many muscles in and around the upper back, all with one movement.

It helps to strengthen and tone not only the vast Latissimus muscles of the back but also the Rhomboids and Trapezius of the Upper back, and also the Biceps!
