The newest piece of equipment has arrived at my Charlotte NC personal training studio. This is a T-Bar Row from Rogue fitness to train the mid and upper back area. For years I've been using landmines and various attachments but this serves as a nice upgrade.
The description from Rogue...
"This fully assembled, no-nonsense machine gives you all the benefits of a neutral-grip T-bar row without the need of a barbell, landmine unit, or other accessories. Compatible with most styles of steel and rubber plates, the Rogue T-Bar Row features a 1.88” diameter post with more than a foot of useable length. After loading a desired weight, athletes can establish their proper foot placement on the machine’s 10x20” diamond tread footplates and choose from either the wide or narrow set of easy-grip, knurled handles.
The entire T-Bar Row machine creates just a 76" x 39.75" footprint, and includes 0.625" laser cut holes for band work as well as holes for bolting the unit to the floor (not required). The inclusion of high-end pillow block bearings ensures a uniquely smooth rotation point, eliminating unwanted side-to-side movements of the arm assembly so you get a consistent, straight return on every pull.
The T-Bar Row movement itself targets every major muscle group in the back, while also working the shoulders and biceps. Despite its considerable benefits, this movement sometimes gets overlooked simply due to the inconvenience of setting up a row station. This machine eliminates that problem."
