5 Moves That Are Best When Performed Sitting Down

1. Cable Rows: To properly target your upper back you want to be focused on the shoulder blades moving towards each other; when you stand to do a cable row you risk unintentionally arching your back, which takes the emphasis off your target muscles
2. Bicep Curls: Sitting while doing a bicep curl forces you to use a dumbbell instead of a bar, which helps to isolate the bicep better. It also limits the use of your legs or back for assistance 
3. Chest Press: Sitting for this move allows your shoulders to be in the perfect position to form a press. Standing gives you a bit too much freedom
4. Dumbbell Overhead Press: Doing this move while sitting forces you to totally rely on the shoulders to press the dumbbells upward as opposed to using your legs for assistance
