The Crow's Gym Thoughts: Vol. 129

Crow's #Gym Vol. 129
Everyone loves a tragedy. If we didn't half the people on Facebook would have nothing to say, but unfortunately there comes a time when you have to be honest with people or they will only get worse. You have the people that cry about their marriage while you watch them not spend any time working on it or respecting the other person in it. You watch the fool that invests all their money in the stock market without spending any time watching trends. Do you give them pity or an objectivity lesson? What about the most common of all of these, the person who won't spend an hour doing any sort of exercise yet they are always complaining about being run down or overweight? Don't be an enabler, tell them the truth.

Exercise of the Day from The Health Whacko Gym Encyclopedia of Shoulder Exercises ..
Deltoid Row (Cable Wide Grip Seated)
Target MusclesLatissimus dorsi, Rhomboids, Teres major and minor, Erector spinae, Biceps, Fore-arms, Pectoralis major
Starting Position:
1. Sit facing the cable row machine and place your feet against the foot rests. Grasp the bar and bend your knees slightly.
2. Lean forwards, while maintaining a normal, slightly curved spinal position.
3. Pull back a little way until your torso is nearly upright and your arms are fully extended.
The Movement:
1. Pull the bar towards you until it touches your lower rib / upper abdomen region. You should be pulling your elbows and shoulders directly backwards as far as possible.
2. Hold for a count of two; then slowly return to the starting position, maintaining a near ­upright position.
Tips:
• To achieve rear deltoid development, keep your torso nearly upright during the entire movement - it should not move forwards or backwards more than 10°.
• Maintain a normal curve in your back - do not arch your back excessively.
• Keep your legs slightly bent and still throughout the movement.
• Inhale at the start of the movement; then hold your breath during the pulling phase - this helps stabilize your torso. Exhale only towards the end of the movement once your arms are extended.
