✅ The Seated Cable Row is a great exercise for building a bigger, thicker back.
-
-
❗️However, if you want more focus on your lower lats, try getting out of the seat and standing to do the exercise.
-
-
❗️One problem with the seated cable row is that the position of the pulley tends to be too high to get enough focus on the lower lats. Due to the line of pull of the cable, this keeps the focus mainly on the middle lats and middle traps.
-
-
✅ By standing up, the pulley is lower, and therefore the line of pull is better to place focus more on the lower portion of the lats.
-
-
⁉️ To do the standing version, grab the handle and place one foot on or near the foot plate that's used when seated. Keep your other foot secure on the floor for balance. Stick your chest out and keep your lower back arched as you use your lats to pull your elbows back behind you as far as you can. Slowly return the handle to the start position to allow some stretch on the lats, and then repeat for reps.
-
-
👉 One way to use this version is to do an extended set. Start by doing the standing version of the cable row, which is harder than the seated version.
-
-
✅ Once you reach muscle failure on the standing version, immediately sit down and continue doing the seated cable row with the same weight until you reach muscle failure again.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there setting a great example for their kids. I couldn't have asked for a better role model growing up than my dad, Jim Stoppani, Sr. Thanks, dad, for teaching me the importance of living an active lifestyle from a young age. You set the tone for my future career all those years ago!

💪One of my favorite exercises to build a bigger biceps peak is my Behind-the-Back Cable Curl.
-
-
✅ Having the arm behind the body while curling stretches the biceps long head, making it the stronger head during this curl.
-
-
❗️Another way to increase the focus on the biceps long head, which makes up the majority of the mass of the biceps peak, is to use a neutral grip when curling.
-
-
✅ The neutral grip also helps to increase the focus on the deeper brachialis muscle of the upper arm, as well as the brachioradialis muscle on the forearm, but evidence suggests that it also moves more of the focus to the long head.
-
-
✅ You can combine both techniques by doing my Behind-the-Back Cable Hammer Curl. Attach a rope handle to the low pulley and walk away from the weight stack a few feet to get more stretch on the arm.
-
-
✅ Stand in a staggered stance with the same leg as the working arm in back. With a neutral grip on the rope and your arm pulled back behind you, curl the rope handle toward your shoulder while trying to keep your upper arm as far behind you as you can.
-
-
✅ Hold for a second in this poison as you contract the biceps hard, then slowly allow the handle to return to the start position and repeat for reps.
-
-
✅ Once all reps are done on one arm, switch arms and follow the same form.
