The standing one arm row with elbow draw is a great exercise to put more emphasis on the posterior delt, scapular stabilization and still get some good transverse plane motion in the body. Start with your weight forward on the right leg and involve both arms to get some rotation of the thoracic spine. As you pull back or row with the left arm, keep the elbow high and at the same time pivot on the back left leg, rotate out and get a good weight transfer into the back leg. Shift your weight forward as the tubing returns to the weight stack.To progress this exercise and make it a little bit more challenging, increase the tempo so you have a higher cardiovascular demand on your body, as well as having to control and react to the elasticity in the tubing.
