Single-arm cable seated row

The single-arm cable seated row is a version of the cable row movement that trains the muscles of the upper back one side at a time. It targets a wide range of muscles including the lats (latissimus dorsi), traps, rhomboids, and rear deltoids. It also targets the biceps to a lesser degree. The single-arm 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. Uses equipment common in commercial gyms
  2. Cable provides constant tension throughout the movement, including at peak contraction
  3. Easy to quickly switch weights for dropsets
  4. Working the back one side at a time allows you to focus on balance between sides and feel the proper muscles contracting
