Not so much in a climber, most of whom already have strong backs from pulling and stabilizing on overhanging terrain.

I've actually found that MANY climbers do not stabilize on overhanging terrain. Instead they maintain a sustained protracted position and have very weak scapular stabilizers.


Thanks, it was interesting and the lead author is a sometime contributor here.

I'll point out that the muscles strengthened by seated cable rows are really not lower traps and serratus anterior, which are the weak muscles identified in the study.

Also, there is no mention in the study regarding whether the measurers were blinded to whether the subject was a climber or not. If not, confirmation bias is a serious concern in the study.

Thanks though.
