The bench press is one of the most popular exercises in the gym, but
how many people do the opposite movement? Think about what happens to
your shoulders and your posture after weeks, months, even years of
pressing one way without pulling the other way. A great way to correct
this muscle imbalance is with the seated rope row to neck.
For best results, stretch
your chest and front part of your shoulders (i.e., anterior deltoids)
first, then perform the seated rope row to neck and make sure to pause
in the contracted position where the elbows are back for 1-5 seconds.
Tomorrow we’ll take a look at how to sequence the seated rope row to
neck in a strength training program for posture improvement.
