I’ve been messing around with the Hammer Stength Plate Loaded Seated Isolateral Row. It’s a pretty decent machine, and if I clack on a good amount of weight it works my upper and mid back rather well.
Of late, after doing a lot of heavy sets, when my arms don’t seem to be working, I’ve started grasping the handles where they’re furthest from the body and pinching my shoulder-blades together, sort of like a shrug but it’s a horizontal movement as opposed to a vertical movement. I find it hits the traps and mid back very well.
Does anyone else do this exercise? What’s your favourite trap (middle and lower fiber) exercise?
