    Not as good as dumbbell rows.

    I like the way that the seated row targets the middle of my back but the one negative for me is it can be difficult to keep your lower back in neutral and get in and out of position while still piling on enough weight to really make a difference. Personally, I much prefer some type of barbell row, dumbbell row, chin-up, or deadlift.
