  1. Connect a V-bar attachment to the low pulley on a cable station or cable rowing machine.
  2.  Sit down at the station and place your feet on the foot pads or crossbar provided, while keeping your knees slightly bent.
  3. Lean forward, keeping your back straight and grip the V-bar handles with both hands.
  4. Keeping your arms fully extended pull back until your torso is at a 90-degree angle from your legs.
  5. Your back should be slightly arched, with your chest should be pushed out. This is the start position.
  6. Keeping your torso stationary, pull the handles back towards you while squeezing your back muscles.
  7. Keep your arms close to your sides until your hands reach your abdomen. Exhale as you perform this movement.
  8. Hold for a count of one.
  9. Inhale as you return to the start position in a smooth movement.
  10. Repeat.

Do not swing or rock back and forth as you perform this exercise. Doing so can cause lower back injury. <strong></strong> You can perform this exercise using a straight bar instead of a V-Bar. You can use an underhand or overhand grip.

Secondary:
Abs, Biceps, Chest, Triceps
  1. Place two dumbbells or kettlebells on the floor about shoulder width apart.
  2. In a push up position, place your hands on the grip section of each bell for support.
  3. Spread your legs to slightly wider than hip width apart with your toes supporting your weight. This is the start position.
  4. Push down through one bell and at the same time “row” the opposite one upwards by retracting your shoulder and bending your elbow.
  5. Hold for a count of one.
  6. Your breathing should remain constant throughout the movement.
  7. Lower the bell to the floor and without pause, then repeat the movement with your other arm.
  8. When you have rowed both arms, that is one repetition.
  9. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

This is an advanced level exercise. Lower strength and poor form has the potential for injury to the middle and lower back and wrists.
