Hydra Seal Row Pad: The Ultimate Multi-Functional Rack Attachment

Many great barbell back exercises build mass and strength in your lats, upper back, and posterior chain. But one variation that often gets pushed aside is the seal row.

If you're looking for a new way to target your back muscles and perform a variety of exercises with your power rack, then you should add a seal row pad attachment to your arsenal.

Like the Hydra Seal Row Pad!

This revolutionary piece of equipment allows you to perform rowing exercises with a neutral grip, targeting your lats, rhomboids, and traps for a strong, muscular back. Not to mention the multitude of other exercises that you can do with it. šŸ˜‰

There are many options for purchasing dedicated seal row benches and pads, but they tend to be pricey. In this blog post, we'll go over a quick overview of the Bells of Steel Hydra Seal Row Pad and some key exercises you can try to take your training to the next level.

So, let's rock and row! The Hydra Seal Row Pad is a simple but super versatile chest-supported row pad that attaches to any Hydra Power Rack. It acts as the back part of an adjustable bench, giving you space to do a multitude of exercises.

It's designed to be the best of the best. It has a TRUE 3"x3" tubing that fits any power rack upright with 5/8" holes, is made of 11-gauge steel, has a 6" space between the welded pin and rear locking pin hole, and is lined with UHMW on the inside to prevent scratching your rack.

With a weight capacity of 500 pounds, you can trust that this product is able to handle any workout you throw at it. šŸ’Ŗ

The Hydra Seal Row Pad is extremely useful to those working in small gyms because it allows you to perform almost any movement in a limited space.

The design of the angle selector wheel on the Hydra Seal Row Pad is identical to that on our Sliding Lever Arms. Anyone who wants to execute exercises like seal rows, chest-supported rows, and hip thrusts doesn't have to worry about stability or comfort. We promise you'll love the angle variations. šŸ˜‰

The padding is supportive and comfortable; you can put your weight on it and easily perform any exercise you require with plenty of head clearance. It measures 16" in length, 12" wide across the top, and has a 2.25" thickness.
