Low to High Row

The shrug machine is yet another piece of equipment that can be well-used for good back activation.

In this specific exercise, we row from a lower, to a higher position, while also extending the torso, instead of keeping it in a static position.

This extension will allow you to activate the spinal erectors, which stabilize the torso and the spine.
