Located next to the middle portion of the trapezius, the rhomboid, as its name suggests, is a rhomboid shaped muscle which is recruited during the retraction and downward rotation of the scapula.

The rhomboid can be targeted with pull/chin up exercise variations, as well as row exercises. In simple terms, the rhomboids will be effectively stimulated from a decent back routine.
