Reverse Flys

Low Rope Rows 

3 sets of 12 

Low Rope Cable Rows are a great exercise to build your muscle and strength in your back. By lowering the angle of the pull, this exercise also helps to protect your joints from unwanted stress. 

Lateral Pull Down (rear) 

3 sets of 10 

The Lateral Pull Down is the perfect exercise for those not quite ready for pull ups. The clue is in the name, but this is going to help to work your lats and create that signature V shape. 

T-Bar Row 

3 sets of 8 reps

The T-bar is a really versatile piece of equipment and rows are a great way to add it into your workout routine. T-bar rows will help you build strength and grow your shoulder, upper back and arm muscles. It also requires you being able to stabilise yourself, which means your abs, glutes and hamstrings are also put under pressure as you lift.
