Proformance Plus PPL-930 Seated Row - The Proformance Plus Seated Row by TuffStuff will enable you to attack your lats and mid-back like few other exercises. Even diehard free weight proponents will find the seated row superior to many rowing movements that can be done with barbells or dumbbells. Anyone who has ever performed barbell bentover rows knows all too well that the lower back nearly always fatigues first, forcing the set to be terminated well before the lats have been exhausted. While dumbbell rows are a slightly better option for preserving the lower back, they often degenerate into a heaving and twisting affair that relies more on momentum than on muscle power to move the weight. These limitations do not exist with the seated row. The main reason the seated row is so effective is because the lower back is supported throughout the movement by the chest pad. Without having to worry about stabilizing the lower back with an awkward and demanding static contraction, the lifter is free to concentrate all his or her energy on pulling the handles with the lats and mid-back. If you’re after the sort of back development that causes jaws to drop as you walk away, look no further than this smartly designed seated back row machine.
The Proformance Plus Plate Loaded Seated Row manages to incorporate a simple, low maintenance design while also including every important design feature you could want in a superior rowing machine. Independent pivot arms allow unilateral movement, and the 360° articulating u-grip handles permit user defined hand positioning. Row with your palms down, facing, or anywhere in between. The chest support pad adjusts with a pop pin for users of different arm lengths. The adjustable seat pad not only accommodates users of different heights but also allows subtle variations in the way you target the muscles. A lower seat position hits the upper back more directly, while a higher seat position focuses on the mid back. Experiment with different hand and seat positioning to achieve just the right mind-muscle connection that leads to the best results for your particular body type. Regardless of how strong you become, the 8.5” weight horns enable you to load plenty of plates, and the low profile and three-point floor contact mean the machine won’t wobble even with strenuous use.
