The Meadows Row is a hard-hitting back exercise that packs on lean muscle. If you can’t feel back exercises, you need to add the Meadows Row to your workout.
The Meadows Row is named after one of my favourite bodybuilders, John Meadows. He’s an old school bodybuilder from the United States, that has been working out since he was 13 years old. His workouts are intense and carefully planned out to get the most out of a workout. He’s one bodybuilder I admire the most because even after he almost died from his colon bursting, he just kept on going. THAT is what bodybuilding is all about!
The core muscles of your back are worked during any rowing exercise. You get the benefits of the full stretch on the muscle during the concentric phase and eccentric phase. Using the full range of motion is key in bodybuilding: the strength and size of the muscle will be greater where there is a longer range of motion.
