How do I perform a standing cable row alternate arms?

Wendy Batts
When performing a standing cable row with alternating arms exercise, you want to 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. Hold the handles out in front of you with your elbows extended, and in one continuous motion row one arm 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 on the other arm. Continue alternating arms 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 the thumb of one 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 opposite arm.
