Seated Row – Narrow Grip – Isometric Hold – An Osteopaths Perspective
In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy performing a narrow grip seated row (horizontal pulling exercise) and incorporating an isometric hold at the end of the pull phase. If we think about time under tension for an exercise we must consider the start – concentric – mid – eccentric – end phases. Adding an isometric hold at the start – mid – end points will add to the challenge by increasing the total time of the rep and therefore set and in this case, the isometric hold has been added to to the most challenging phase of the movement.
