Basic Muscles Explanation
The Latissimus dorsi is a long muscle that covers the lateral part of the back.The Teres major is a small, rounded muscle located alongside the superior part of the Latissimus dorsi. In the scapular zone, the Rhomboids and the Trapecius unite in its middle part. The Trapecius is a long, diamond shaped muscle, that descends from the neck to the middle of the back. The middle part of the trapezius is greatly involved in this type of movements. The Rhomboids hides under the Trapecius in the middle section of the back.
Muscles & Joint Actions
In pull movements, such as rows or pulls, the arms move backwards from the forward position.To make elbows surpass the back level, the shoulder scapulas meet the spine by contracting the rhomboid, the major dorsal, the round major and the middle section of the trapezius. The elbow flex is important in these exercises because the biceps contracts in a secondary manner to benefit the arm pull.
The muscles and actions involved in these back exercises are crucial in activities that require approach movements and arm pulls, where the arm is pulled to meet the body. Sports that include these movements are rowing in all its variations and gymnastics with machines. Also rugby, judo or swimming. In regards to other sports where the pull or approach are used as technical moves are archery and volleyball shoots.
