🏋 Rowing machine – 2 handle variations 💪

A horizontal pulling movement should not be missing in a back workout. One way to perform such a movement is the rowing machine. But what is actually the difference between the 2 handle variants?

1️⃣ The inner vertical handle

With this grip variation we dominantly hit our latissimus muscle and slightly less the muscles surrounding the shoulder blade.

2️⃣ The outer horizontal handle

This grip is good when we want to dominantly hit our shoulder blade surrounding muscles. In addition, this also causes more of the horizontal fibers of the latissimus muscle to lie in the direction of traction.

In all variants we hit a large part of the pull muscles, the only question here is which muscles you want to hit dominantly.
