After all the buzz, we decided to take a look and figure out what makes this Row Machine Trainer so great. And we completely fell in love with this Squat and Row Machine Trainer. For one, it is one of the lowest priced trainer machines out there and with a 4.6 rating on Amazon, it is also one of the most highly rated ones.
With the option to target your quads, glutes (butt), hips, abs, or to go more and isolate your shoulders, lats, or back through minor adjustments this makes the perfect workout, or warmup for leg and back days.
Now it’s important to note that one still needs to follow proper instructions as there are reviewers out there that claimed this bothered their knee. Clearly one should follow the advice of one’s medical practitioner before using anu new exercise equipment, and we aren’t medical experts so this advice should only be followed after getting an ok from your doctor. However, there are a few options to minimize stress on the knee.
- Use upper pulling strength more, by pulling the handle towards your body as you lean your back behind you
- Minimize the range of motion on your knees to not go down so low.
- Reduce the tension by adjusting the number of bands to make the exercise lighter
Please note that like all exercises, proper technique and form is important to reduce wearing down of the joints, reducing injury, and maximizing benefits.
- So keep your back locked straight, no curving or arching.
- Tighten your abs by taking a deep breathe at the top and holding air in as yo go down, and exhaling at the top.
- Knees bend down to as low as one can comfortably go.
- As you rise, keep in mind to push by tightening your butt, as your back remains straight and locked.
- Pull your arms down to your hips, in a humping motion.
With these precautions one can ensure one gets a good workout, and targets the butt, and reduces injury.
We love this machine for it’s convenience, ease of use and give it a high rating.
