Proformance Plus PPS-207 Seated Row - The Proformance Plus Seated Row by TuffStuff is a top of the line selectorized rowing machine that even diehard free weight proponents will appreciate for the many advantages it offers in working the lats and mid-back. For many exercises, there’s no denying the balancing and independent movement path of free weights makes them superior to machines for working the involved muscles through a complete range of motion. Rows are one of the few exceptions where a well-designed machine trumps its barbell and dumbbell counterparts. Anyone who has ever done barbell rows knows what a scary exercise they can be. To row properly, you must bend at the waist at about a 45° angle while holding a loaded barbell suspended at arms length and maintaining a flat back. You then must hold this precarious position throughout your set by maintaining an enormous amount of hamstring and lower back tension. Many trainees are able to row well in excess of 200 pounds with their large and powerful lat muscles, making the stabilizing task of the lower back and hamstrings even more difficult. For most, the risk/reward proposition of rowing forces them to abandon the movement altogether or adopt an alternative like dumbbell rows. While dumbbell rows lessen the potential for lower back injury because you can help support the weight of your torso with your free hand, they are still ripe for poor exercise form through heaving and twisting that leads to diminished gains.
The Proformance Plus Seated Lat Row separates the wheat from the chaff, as the saying goes. The diverging movement arms, 360° fully articulating open handles, and gas-assisted adjustable seat all combine to create an individualized movement path that is equal to the experience of free weight rowing. The movement arms naturally separate as you pull the resistance toward your body, allowing a full contraction of the lats and mid-back throughout each rep. The 360° fully articulating handles allow you to row with whatever grip best suits your body, and to even naturally change your hand position throughout the movement, just as you might with a dumbbell. You can set the gas-assisted adjustable seat high to pull more toward your abdomen and engage the lats and mid-back; low to pull toward your chest and target the upper back; or in the middle for a balanced contraction. Perhaps most importantly, the gas-assisted chest support pad means that regardless of your arm length, you can adjust the machine to support your lower back throughout the movement, leaving you to focus on working the targeted muscles rather than being distracted by struggling to maintain a stable body position.
