The standing row is a great exercise that we use with many of our Chiropractic clients at our clinic in Edmonton. Standing is a more functional position than sitting and translates better into sport activity or even daily live. Rowing can be easy on the shoulders and gets good posterior shoulder and scapular muscle contraction when done properly. This can be an important preventative measure in today’s society with so much sitting and forward based movements. It is also a great exercise post-surgically or after an injury.
