The seated cable row can be classified as a compound movement that primarily targets the mid back. Secondary muscles include the shoulders and biceps.

Although the seated row hits the entire back, it's specialty is the mid back and is a great exercise for building thickenss in this area.

It's important to keep your back straight during the entire movement and don't hunch over. Keep a slight bend in your knees and pull all the way into your lower stomach.
