Shotgun row

The shotgun row is a single-arm row variation utilizing a cable stack in a staggered stance. It targets the muscles of the middle back, like the lats (latissimus dorsi) and rhomboids, but also the core. It is usually performed for moderate to high-reps, at least 8-15 reps per set, in the later stages of a back or upper-body workout.


  1. Allows natural rotation of the hand
  2. Single-arm rows allow you to really feel the lats working
  3. Sneakily difficult core work when done with heavy weights or high reps
