Cable Crossover Row

Pro Tip

If the handles you use are uncomfortable, try switching them out for similar ones with a different grip.

How To

  1. Stand upright and grab the cable on either side of you with your opposing hand.
  2. Exhale and lower your arms back towards your body, tucking your elbows in towards your sides and squeezing your shoulder blades together.
  3. Continue until your elbows pass behind your back.
  4. Inhale and allow your elbows to extend and arms to raise, returning to the starting position.

It is widest in the middle, forming a diamond shape that connects the middle of your back to both of your shoulder blades and the upper portion of your neck. It is comprised of three regions. Each region has a different function and is trained in different ways.
