Standing Unilateral High Row

Stand inside a cable station facing the weight stack with a stirrup handle attached to a high pulley. Reach up and grab the handle as you adopt a staggered stance with your opposite leg one full stride behind the other. With your lead nee slightly bent and torso held straight, draw your elbow back until it passes your torso. Pause and then return the weight to the starting position. Keeping your elbow in close to your body will involve the lats more, while performing the exercise with your elbow out away from your body will recruit the scapular retractors more.
