Seated Cable Rows

Seated Cable Rows – Upper Body Strength Exercise

This page looks at the strength training exercise known as Seated Cable Rows. This exercise works on upper body strength and thus helps to generate stronger punches and grappling techniques.

Seated cable rows focuses on back muscles (such as trapezius and lat muscles). It also helps to develop the strength in the muscles of the biceps, forearms and shoulders. If you do not have a cable machine, athletes often use the alternative known as Dumbbell Rows.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor to ensure the proper technique is being utilized and to avoid potential injuries. For additional exercises, please visit the main Physical Fitness section.
