Instructions: How To

Cable Row with Squat is a combination movement that entails combining a Squat with a Cable Row. Both of the exercises included in this combination are compound movements. This exercise targets muscles in both your legs and upper body, and is a great combination for developing upper body strength in a squat position.

  1. Stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart and the cable anchor set to belly button height. 
 Grab ahold of the handles so that your palms are facing in with your elbows bent so that the handles start on the outsides of your torso.
 Bend your knees to lower yourself into a squat while simultaneously extending your arms towards the cable anchor.
 Stand back to upright and row the handles back into your torso keeping your spine in a neutral position throughout the movement.

Common Mistakes

  • Weight Forward

    Allowing your weight to shift forward can lead to the cable pulling you out of position. Keep your weight in your heels throughout the exercise.
