Cable seated row

The cable seated row is a popular exercise to train the muscles of the upper back, including the lats (latissimus dorsi), traps, rhomboids, and rear deltoids, using a cable stack. It also targets the biceps to a lesser degree. The cable row can work well in a variety of rep ranges but is most popular in muscle-building workouts or as an accessory movement for strength workouts.
