- Connect the close-grip attachment to the seated row. Place both hands on the close-grip attachment with a neutral grip (palms facing inwards). Sit on the bench and place your feet on the foot plates. Hold the attachment directly in front of your belly button with arms extended. Pull your shoulder blades down and back slightly to push your chest out. This is your starting position.
