Machine Row Exercise Guide

The row belongs in the basic, multiple-joint exercise category because both the shoulder and the elbow joints are mobilized. As a result, rowing recruits many muscles in addition to the entire back: the rear shoulders, the biceps, the long head of the triceps, and the forearms. The row is considered a good starting exercise because it stimulates many muscle groups of the upper body.

Machine Row Technique – Proper Form

STARTING POSITION (SETUP): Sit facing the weight stack of the machine with your chest and abdomen  against the chest pad. Place your feet flat on the floor or on the foot supports (if available). Adjust the seat so your arms are level with the machine’s handles and you must stretch your arms fully to reach them. Grasp the handles using a closed, pronated (or neutral) grip with your elbows fully extended.

EXECUTION (ACTION): Pull the handles toward you until your hands are alongside your chest (or upper abdomen). As you bend your arms, your elbows should travel directly behind you, not out to the side. At the same time, squeeze your shoulder blades together. Slowly straighten your arms, feeling a stretch through your shoulder blades as you return the handles to their original position.

Muscles Involved in Machine Row Exercise

  • MAIN MUSCLES: latissimus dorsi, brachialis, biceps, teres major and minor
  • SECONDARY MUSCLES: rhomboids, triceps (long head), brachioradialis, trapezius (lower), deltoid (rear)
  • ANTAGONISTS: deltoid (front), pectoralis major, triceps

Additional Tips

  • Adjust the seat of the machine row so that your arms are parallel to the floor when you grab the handles.
  • Sit on the machine with your chest and abdomen resting against the pad (do not move your body back).
  • Adjust the chest pad so that the weight plates do not touch the bottom of the stack when you hold the handles with full arm extension.
  • Pull your elbows as far back as possible and squeeze the shoulder blades together to maximize muscle contraction.
  • Common mistakes: extending the torso to get help from the lower back muscles and muscles along the spinal column; incomplete movement; and incorrect set-up (or design) of the machine.
  • Don’t allow the weight stack to touch down between reps.
  • Maintain the natural curve in your lower back throughout the movement.
  • To target the lower latissimus muscles, raise the seat higher so that you’re pulling the handles to a lower point. To target the upper latissimus muscles, lower the seat do that you’re pulling to your chest and use a wider grip if available.
