what types of exercise emulates rowing?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Jeffrey Roh

Rowing exercises: Rowing typically recruits the muscles of the latissimus dorsi, biceps brachii, and forearm flexors. Apart from machines that actually emulate rowing, exercises that most-accurately replicate the recruitment of the aforementioned muscle groups include: 1) pull-ups, 2) bent-over rows, and 3) close grip lat pulls. Using relatively lighter weights and higher reps can help emulate the act of rowing.
