Elevated Cable Rows

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.


  1. Constant tension throughout the movement, including at peak contraction
  2. Equipment common in commercial gyms
  3. Easy to quickly switch weights for dropsets or utilize lifting straps to lift heavier
  4. Can use a variety of handles and grip widths to target different parts of the back
