Want a great exercise for strengthing virtually all of the upper back in one smooth motion? Then standing, low-cable, close-grip rows are perfect to add to your back day!
___
I prefer the standing variation as opposed to seated just because it makes me brace my core even more, while also slightly changing the angle of the rowing motion, giving me a better contraction in my traps/rhomboids. In addition to the aforementioned muscles, this row variation also targets the lats, teres, and rear delts.
___
The motion is simple: take a comfortable, athletic stance while bending your knees and bracing your core. Take an inhale, then exhale and gradually pull straight back until your elbows are just behind your torso. At the top of the motion, hold for one full second, and imagine you're trying to touch your elbows against each other across your back (if you manage to actually make them touch, you may be made of rubber). This will cause the greatest possible contraction of the working muscles, leading to an awesome pump within one properly executed set.
___
Simple as that! As always, give it a shot and see what you think! Have questions about any and all things exercise/fitness related? Message me anytime! I'm always available, and more than happy to help out. Y'all got this!

Steven Hepperly, for the classes that are offered at the bottom of the hill, can I park down there and somehow check in down there? I’m disabled and not able to park at the top, check-in, then walk down all those steps, then have to come back up them to leave. Which leads to my next question for you. I’m the one that’s been asking about childcare being offered up top. When my 3 youngest girls (ages 13, 10 & 6) are out of school for breaks and summer, would my 13 year old be allowed to check the other 2 into childcare for me, if it’s still at the bottom of the hill? That way I could still attend the water classes.

I need to get back! Paying a membership! Need to use it

Is there any chance of getting childcare back on Saturday mornings?

Lisa Williams Caldwell mom you should join!

Is cycling no longer a class? I didn’t see it on the photos below

Will you be adding water classes to Saturday morning?

Yes please move the spin class here.

Cardio theatre

Self defense class would fit perfectly in there!

It already has the court floor, so aerobics seems to be the easiest way to go.

Cardio theatre!!

Cardio theater would be awesome!!

Cardio theater for sure

Yes!!!! Let me at it!!!

Cardio theatre!!!!!!!!!

Like it could have bikes too 😉

Theatre all the way

… and doing a fine job of it!

I see Tina Dockery Hepperly found out Kirkland’s opened! 😂😂😂😂

Looking great. New additions each time I go.

I just walked by and saw the new decorations. Great job!

Love my gym and it’s looking awesome 👏

Goodness I would like for her to come to my home. She’s got the touch.

Looks great

Steve Hepperly, let me know when you need them windows replaced with super high energy efficient windows!

Looks good!

She doing a beautiful job

My hubby enjoyed the seating area, while I was changing from my bathing suit, after water aerobics. Really happy with all the upgrades. Looking great!

Wilma Effler Is our best advertiser for Olympia!! Thank you Robert Effler and Wilma we appreciate your help!

I had doubt ! The first thing I said when you guys purchased Olympia is Tina Dockery Hepperly going to have this place looking AWESOME 👏🏻! She has the magic touch! I’m going to hire her to decorate when we build our home on top of the world! Steven Hepperly Taylor Hepperly

She’s doing a marvelous job too! Like the new look!

I noticed it when I was there Friday. Much better than the ski theme. The stairs still need a 2nd handrail. The older members have complained about that for years. You need a handrail on both sides.

I am in Silver Sneakers so I’ve been coming and walking on treadmill in evenings. I am interested in classes but not sure if I can handle Zumba 😳. Senior Fitness might be more my speed but I am still working so daytime is not good. Can I come Tues. evening and observe Zumba 😬??

Brian Stephens

When I was in hs 20 years ago it was bad. In the saunas and the hottub

Jacob Slingluff 😂

Amen and thank you!

Keep it up Steve. Your doing a great job. Don't like to set around with a bunch of naked men. And I ant

Yes. The out of shape, wrinkled bodies sitting proudly in hot tube and walking thru with small child to go to shower. Some people were just born without class.

Believe I'll be coming back to Olympia! #1 complaint from when I was there and still from people I know that still go! Great rule!!!

Great rule!

No more jewels hanging over my head when I'm soaking. Priceless

I started to go in steam room once and there was a man naked as a jay bird all laid back and I thought WHAT. He did shower off before he got in whirlpool but still naked. Yeah my first thought was where is your shorts. That this wasn't right

So glad to here your going 24/7 My wife and I joined right after you acquired it and haven’t been back since🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️ I guess there’s more to getting fit then just joining🤣😂🤣 glad to hear you implemented a clothes on policy I had done decided I would never use the sauna or whirlpool sitting around naked with a bunch of dudes isn’t my idea of fun or healthy 🤷🏻‍♂️😳😳🤪

Called respect

Any word yet on the daycare coming upstairs in the near future?

Jacob Cupp Blayne Howard

Are the hot tubs available again?

For real.... Gross!

I've heard Olympia will be going 24/7. Any truth to this? The old naked wrinkled men sitting on the benches and in the sauna scared me for life and tainted my view of Olympia. Glad to hear ya'll have cleaned up things!

YES, please😏

If your objective is to grow lats the size and shape of a professional swimmer's, then today's move is for you: straight arm pulldows! The straight arm pulldown is a great accessory exercise for working the lats, teres major (think back of the arm pit), and a little bit of the long head (inner portion) of the tricep as well. You're welcome to use a wide variety of handles here, such as a rope, straight bar, or even a lat pulldown bar. I prefer a rope attachment because I feel as if I get a better contraction as compared to other handles.
___
As the name suggests, the arms are meant to be kept straight during the entire motion, just short of locking out. Also be sure to keep your shoulder blades retracted and locked together, while continuing to push the chest out. This will ensure that all the tension is placed on your lats. Pull straight down through your pinkies until your hands are beside your hips, then hold and squeeze your lats at the bottom of the motion to get the most out of each rep. Weight and tempo are two things to make sure you keep in check with this exercise. Heavy weight won't be used for this motion, so keeping the positive and negative (think lowering and raising, for this motion anyway) at a slow and controlled pace (maybe 2 to 3 seconds in each direction) is paramount.
___
As always, give it a shot and see what you think. If you're really feeling groggy, post your variation and tag me in it! I like to see my homies working their hardest 💪🏽🦁. Y'all got this!

Agreed, she's super sweet and carries the presence of Jesus with her. She helped me and my mother the other day at the gym as well.

Sweet Hallie! Great heart❤️

I got this message today from a 12 year old boy.

For his 12th Birthday Riley has decided to give back instead of asking for more gifts. Lanier Elementary has a need for boxes of 24 count crayons. Olympia Athletic Club has said they’ll match the donation up to 150 boxes. Please help Riley reach his goal! We’d be happy to pick up from you!
