Lever Bent-over Row (plate loaded)

Instructions

Preparation

With lever handles to sides, bend knees slightly and bend over with back straight. Grasp lower handles.

Execution

Pull lever handles up to sides. Return until arms are extended and shoulders are stretched downward. Repeat.

Comments

Torso should be kept horizontal if flexibility allows. Knees are bent in effort to keep low back straight (See Hamstring Inflexibility). If low back becomes rounded due to tight hamstrings, try bending knees more. Placing weight plates on higher bar lightens resistance at top where strength lessens, without compromising range of motion. See Gravity Vectors to understand how this positioning, altering direction of load, affects exercise resistance (resistance curve). Also see wide grip form.
