The TRX Single Arm Row is both an alternative and a calisthenics exercise. The middle back is the primary target of this exercise. However, it also targets the biceps, forearms and shoulders to a lesser degree.
With the use of the TRX Suspension, this exercise can be performed with other TRX variation such as the TRX Single-Arm/Leg Row and the TRX Row.
