This is a great exercise for core workout junkies who are always looking for
ways to integrate core exercise in other compound movements. Like any kneeling
Total Gym exercise, the upright row is far more difficult from the knees due to
the angle of the Total Gym bench and requiring you to stabilize another joint.
If you have healthy shoulders, the kneeling upright row on the Total Gym
is a great exercise to add to any workout in which you work your shoulders
or upper traps. If you have history of shoulder problems, make sure you
perform this exercise with caution if at all. If working the core is not
something you're interested in, you may wish to perform the standard upright
row on the Total Gym, doing it from a seated position is not possible so you
must perform the Total Gym
lying upright row.
