Minimize lower back fatigue, so you can finally push your back muscles to their limit!

Since the dawn of the barbell, lower back fatigue has crushed every uprising of the Bent-Over-Row.

But, a hero has emerged to defeat this mortal enemy.

Deploy the Hydra Seal Row Pad to minimize lower back fatigue, so you can take your lats to the limit (and achieve eternal glory).

Benefits of the Hydra Seal Row Pad

    Bent-over-rows are great at working your major back muscles, but rarely do lifters actually push their lats to the limit. While approaching those final reps, it’s common for form breakdown to end your set early (unless you’re willing to go full-Quasimodo). But with the Hydra Seal Row Pad, you can comfortably rest your chest against the pad and minimize your lumbar limitations. This means you can grind out more reps for that glorious lat pump 💪🏻 whether your preferred implement is a barbell, dumbbell or church bell kettlebell.
    The seal row is an amazing exercise to target your lats with zero lower back strain. It’s also an amazing pain in the you-know-what to set up. By using about 99% of your home gym equipment and your entire knowledge of structural engineering, you too can build a semi-functioning, rickety surface to perform seal rows for only a few sets. Orrrrr, you can just mount the Hydra Seal Row Pad to your upright and in less than 30 seconds, you’ve got low-back-friendly exercises at your fingertips — no unnecessary equipment (or engineering degree) required.
    The Hydra Seal Row Pad was designed specifically for chest-supported rows, but it’s far from a one-trick pony. Spider & incline curls, chest flies, incline bench, and even hip thrusts are possible with this nifty rack attachment. But the versatility doesn’t stop there. It also acts as a standing desk, coffee nook, and diaper-changing station — just don’t forget those baby wipes.

More AWESOME features on the Hydra Seal Row Pad

Folds Down for Storage

If you’re working out in the equivalent space of a bedroom closet, then the Hydra Seal Row Pad was literally made for you. Once you’re done with it, just pull the pin to fold it down and then insert the pin through the lowest hole of the angle selector wheel. And when folded down for storage, it sits just 9.5″ off the rack. Oh, and it makes a GREAT seat between sets (not that we’d know…)

Better Than a Bench

A common workaround for seal rows is to use an adjustable bench on an incline setting. But here’s the issue: benches move, the pad gets in the way, and your legs often end up with a weird frog-like stance. But with the Hydra Seal Row Pad, the attachment stays fixed in place, your implements can move freely up to your chest, and you can actually stand like a human being — how ribbiting!

Affordable Seal Row

We’ve seen homemade versions of the Hydra Seal Row Pad made on the cheap, all the way up to competitors charging over $350 — which, for a piece of steel and padding, seems a little overkill. We’re not here to deter a handyperson from building a DIY version, but if digging out a circular saw & protractor ain’t your thing… this ready-made attachment might be a more appealing option 😉

7 Easily Adjustable Angles

They said, “Don’t reinvent the wheel.” So, we didn’t. This Hydra Seal Row Pad has the same angle selector wheel design as our Sliding Lever Arms. But don’t let its simplicity fool you! The selector wheel lets you choose from 7 different angles and when combined with the dozens of holes along your uprights, offers hundreds of possible positions to give you a truly customized fit.

Very good

This is a must have for back days. After destroying your lower back on deadlifts, now you can use this to do bent over rows to destroy yourself more!

Hi Edwin, Thank you so much for the 5 star review, we highly appreciate it ! We are delighted you have loved your new hydra seal pad and we hope it continues to offer gruelling workouts! Yours in strength, Marcus & the BoS team

  • My Fitness Goal Is: I own a training facility and this was purchased for that context.

Great job the first time around.

I find it fascinating how many company’s, like Rouge, ignore attachments like this. Usually when they do get around to it they miss the mark. I’m happy to say this is a great effort by BOS on the first attempt. The quality is great the pad seems durable its not to heavy and easy to use. Best of all it’s priced well, really well. Wisely BOS made this to fit Rouge racks I have a monster light and it fits perfectly. For those of us hesitant to change ecosystems products like this build confidence in the brand so it’s a smart move. I could make a few small suggestions but, Its not really needed it this pad does everything it needs to and a few more. The only reason for my 4 star review is related to shipping. It’s bad, full stop. I order a lot of stuff from a lot of different company’s and i have seen an insane trend of neglectful shipping and when its your first impression of a company or new product it makes the experience feel like crap. It’s beyond annoying and turns me away to other providers. By far now BOS has been the worst product to reach my door in terms of shipping quality. Box beat to hell product sticking out powder coat scratched off dents ect. It’s not even Negligible its malpractice the way these things are shipped. If I’m BOS im shore that problem up real fast. To their credit with with the Viking press handle I ordered, the worst packaging i have ever received not a lot better than this, they just shipped me a new one. I had told them the box was so beat up it wasn’t worth even opening and i would just return it. They were easy to work with and solved the problem Good on them. I just wish i didnt have to have the experience in the first place with this products so i could give the 5 stars they deserve.

Built like a tank

Blow away at the quality construction on the seal pad, particularly given the price point. Will be a lifelong BOS customer now.
