    chest supported row

    i've been reading. a lot. i've been reading about how important, whether we know it or not, our rear delts are. i read that a chest supported rowing machine works the back really hard, including the delts. at my gym, we have a machine that uses free weight plates. assuming that i will use the machine correctly, would this be a good machine to use? or are regular bent over rows just that good? if i'm thinking right, this will make the back work harder by removing the jerk tendency from the row. it will also relieve stress from the lower back, whether thats a good thing or not. our gym owner says you can't cheat while rowing with this machine. please lend me your $0.02.
    i rep back.

    what the **** did you just say?

    Edit: to actually add to this thread, i hate them. I find natural motions much better and in real life the row motion would be accompanied by some leg/lower back involvement ala ronnie coleman t bar/barbell rows.

    I hate the pressure it puts on my chest It makes my head feel like its going to explode.

    Dumbell rows are the greatest upperback thing ever.
    It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but rather the one most responsive to change.

    The chest supported row is a good pre/rehab exercise for scapular activation.
    Personally I'd go lighter/higher reps on it to really feel the mind muscle connection.

    Definitely a supplement to bent over rows imo.

    i like CSR's. hit my rear delts way more than regular bb rows and its harder to cheat on them. if you're after rear delt work though also look into face pulls and vogelpohl pulldowns. even wide-ish grip pullups hammers my rear delts pretty good

    Fuk my gym doesn't have that machine but they have the standing t-bar row. I just do regular t-bars in the corner of my gym with a barbell and weights.

    I hate that they crush my ribcage, but if that doesnt bother you I think they are fine. I still think BB rows are better.

    Chest supported rows are a great movement.
    As mentioned harder to cheat on and focuses on the back better than say a barbell row.
    How you do them is important on where your trying to develop.
    If your trying to hit rear delts upper back go with the straight handle,elbows out at a 90 degree angle from the shoulders and pull the bar to the upper chest.
    Adjust the foot plate if it adjusts or bend at the knees.
    If you trying more to lats pull with arms closer to the body using the V handle and to the abs.
    On both try to think only the upper arm from elbow to shoulder moving to contract the back or rear delts.
    Really squeeze the muscle.
    One thing like on these are hold at the top as far as you can pull back with a top pause for a few seconds every rep.
    You will hit that inner area harder that normally doest get that kind of muscle stimulation.
    Max weight s not really the best way to go but a moderate weight thats not to light and allows good form.
