Meadow rows have become one of my favorite variations to incorporate into my #backday. The meadow row, unlike other row variations such as the dumbell row, has a starting shoulder position that is further away from your torso (in more abduction). This upwardly rotates the scapula, putting the rhomboids on stretch and thus at a bit of a disadvantage via length-tension relationships (passive insufficiency). In this shoulder position closer to 90deg of abduction, we can get more MID TRAP activation as well as lats and post delt.
I'm performing the meadow row in the mini-squat position for added core/torso work (anti-rotation) - one of the many benefits of performing exercises on the landmine. You can also perform this exercise in a split stance position. Try to lift the weight only with your back - don't use momentum to lift the weight! Exercise Library
