Seated Row
From: FM 7-22 October 2012
Purpose: This exercise develops strength in the arm and back muscles (Figure 6-33).
Starting Position: Seated position with the feet firmly planted on the foot supports. Lean forward and grasp the handgrips with the hands in a neutral closed grip. Sit erect so the upper body is perpendicular to the floor. Select the appropriate weight and ensure the pin is secure in the weight stack.
Cadence: SLOW
  1. Simultaneously, bend the elbows and pull the handgrips to the chest or upper abdomen while keeping the trunk rigid and the back flat.
  2. Return to the starting position by slowly extending the elbows.
