Rowers don't show all that much in the shoulders. Its the lats that do the bulk of the arm pull work and rowers definitely show that. But never forget that the pull (with the arms) is secondary to the push (with the legs). Its the quads that really show what rowers do the work with.Little John wrote: After 6 weeks at UT2, I started UT1 yesterday and was surprised to see that I need to really pull the thing hard to get into the heartrate range it recommends. It looks like I begin the quest for bigger shoulders now!
