A good simple exercise for the back suits beginners, but even experienced strength-trainers should run Seated Cable Row since it gives good results. Your biceps will also have to work a little in the exercise, but we want to minimize this as much as we can; it is a back exercise. Because you perform the exercise in a machine with fixed footrests and a cable, it will be pretty easy to perform, but there are a few essential things to keep in mind:
Ring rowing, or rowing in rings, is a perfect exercise for strengthening the shoulders and back. The exercise is similar to Inverted Row but it is performed using rings instead of a bar. This gives you greater flexibility in your grip. You can run with a prone, overhand grip, just like Inverted row with a bar, but you can easily turn the palms of your hands towards each other, so-called neutral grip. When you do this, the elbows will be able to be pulled closer to the body and your lats for a greater load than the upper muscles of the back. A neutral grip is also more gentle to your shoulders.
