Wide Grip Seated Row

Much like the cable row machine, the wide grip row machine was made to, well, give you a wider back. With its grip specifics, this machine will allow you to blast the latissimus dorsi (LD) & teres major (TD). Those two are the primary muscles you want to develop when the goal is a wide back.

Try adding this into your back workout routine 1-2x a week. I recommend you perform 5 sets in the 10-12 rep range and focus on your form and mind muscle connection on this move.
