How do I perform a machine cable row?

Wendy Batts
When performing a machine cable row, begin by selecting your desired weight. Hold a handle in each hand and keep your feet straight and flat on floor. Next, hold the handles out in front of you with your elbows extended. Row back by bringing your thumbs toward your armpits and squeezing your shoulder blades together (Make sure not to shrug your shoulders or jut head your forward). Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
Stand facing a cable machine with your feet pointed straight ahead and placed shoulder-width apart.  Hold the cables with your arms extended at chest level.  With your knees slightly bent, row by bringing your thumbs toward your armpits, contracting your shoulder blades together.  Be careful not to shrug your shoulders or jut your head forward.  Hold the contracted position and then return to the starting position.
