HOW TO: Close Grip Seated Row

One of my favourite exercises for improving posture and developing a stronger, more detailed back is the Close Grip Seated Row.

You want to avoid leaning too far back as this shortens the levers and makes the movement easier. The goal is to keep the hips still, chest up, and avoid any “shrugging” which activates the traps.

Breaking the move down into two parts with a retraction of the scapula (like I’m doing here) is an effective way to enhance mind muscle connection and achieve better isolation of the thoracic.
