Tip: Cable Row with Pre-Set Iso-Hold

Build that back. Hold the first rep for 10 seconds, then knock out 8-10 reps.

Isometric holds have their place in strength training. And when combined with regular moderate rep work, they can help you pack on muscle too. This method works especially well for back training.

For the cable row, hold your first rep for about 10 seconds. Without resting, begin your normal set of 8-10 reps. You'll have to use a little less weight than you normally do on your cable rows.
