LINE OF PULL
The barbell row. Many different ways to execute some better than others, but let's talk about some added resistance from a different line of pull as shown.
On this exercise you'll notice that upon performing each repetition the band is pulling the bar away from where I stand. ➖
This is excellent stress throughout the entire set regarding the added fight to ensure your chest is up and shoulders NOT coming forward . It puts a focus on YOUR ability to counteract the band pulling you out of position and dragging those shoulders forward and so there is more work involved in both rowing the bar and ensuring your position does not falter
Does it feel different?
Absolutely, and I encourage people to try it from a low angle up to waist level. It's a constant working feeling on your mid trapezius, lats and posterior delts throughout the set and proved quite difficult hence the relatively light load (60KG). ✅checklist
Broad base from ground up
Core engaged suck that gut in
Chest up however do NOT compromise that spine and bend like a slinky barricading down steps.
Bend in knees and back straight NO BENDING
If you're rounding drop the weight and/or drop the strength of band.
Train the muscle and not the movement -- body composition purposes-- Give it a try 👋
