How do I perform a standing cable row 1 arm?

Wendy Batts
Fitness
When performing a standing, single-arm row exercise, first select the amount of weight on the cable machine that you want to use. Next, stand with your feet hip-width apart and pointed straight ahead.  Be sure to draw in your belly button and keep your neck relaxed. With the arm fully extended, hold the handle in one hand and row it back by bringing your thumb toward your armpit and squeezing your shoulder blades together. Be sure not to shrug your shoulders or jut head your forward. Return to the start position and repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
 
Stand facing a cable machine with your feet pointed straight ahead and placed shoulder-width apart.  Hold one cable with your arm extended at chest level.  With your knees slightly bent, row by bringing the thumb of your hand toward your armpit, 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.  Repeat the exercise with the same arm.
