One-arm cable rows are an effective strength training exercise commonly used to target the muscles of the back, primarily the latissimus dorsi, trapezius, and rhomboids. To perform a one-arm cable row, start by standing facing a cable machine with the cable placed at approximately waist height. Grasp the handle of the cable with one hand, ensuring that your palm is facing inward and your arm is fully extended. Engage your back muscles and begin to slowly pull the cable towards your side, keeping your elbow close to your body and squeezing your shoulder blade at the top of the movement. Lower the cable back to the starting position and repeat for desired repetitions. One-arm cable rows are a great exercise to add variation to your back workout routine as they provide a different angle of resistance compared to traditional barbell or dumbbell rows. It is important to maintain proper form throughout the exercise to avoid injury and maximize the effectiveness of the movement. Additionally, it is recommended to use a weight that challenges you while still allowing for proper form and execution. One-arm cable rows can also be modified to target different areas of the back by adjusting the angle and height of the cable machine, or by using different attachments such as a rope or v-bar handle.
