I read a Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and I learned good stuff.
Knees slightly bent with the bar between your legs. Your take the handles with a pronated grip. Your back is straight and you incline your torso at about 45° :
Inspires and brings the bar to your chest
Exhale at the end of the movement
This exercise is similar to the barbell bent rows but it allows a better work of the back muscles because there is less need to focus on the body’s positioning.
This exercise works latissimus dorsi, teres major, infraspinatus, rhomboids, the middle part of trapezius and arm’s flexors (biceps, brachialis, and brachioradialis).
Incline your torso works your abs and spinal erectors isometrically.
With a supinated grip, this exercise especially works the brachialis and the upper part of trapezius at the end of the pull.
There are some machines that allow you to have a semi-pronation grip. With a semi-pronation grip, you intensely work the forearms muscles, especially the brachioradialis.
