    Seated cable rows, how heavy?

    Beginner here and I was just wondering how heavy my seated rows should be compared to my other back lifts? I currently bent over dumbbell row 50lbs. I also lat pulldown the same weight as I seated row, which I don't think should be correct.

    I'm guessing you're at the novice level. Depending on what program you're on I suggest do the most weight you can perform for said reps and keep a precise strict form. Eg not leaning back and swinging with great momentum. Hope this helps.

    Start with probably 40 pounds and see how that feels. Very slight bend in knees, lean slightly forward, pull smoothly and keep elbows close to your sides. Do not bend legs as you go, do not lean back as you go. You really want to concentrate on using your lats, and mostly let your arms 'go along for the ride'.

    Good luck man !

    Depending upon your form, you'll likely cable row more than BB row. However, I'm a fan of not going too heavy with the movement and maintaining a 8-12 range.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    i used to love doing this exercise close-grip..i will say it's hard on your lower back, if you have problems in that area that is. But i have gotten good results in the past from seated cable rows

    I'll give advice opposite to the other posters. I go pretty heavy on all back lifts. I try to maintain good form but I don't mind a jerk or some pull in the movement as long as the back is getting worked. I go about 30lbs heavier on seated cable rows than I do on lat pulldowns.
