      One arm db row or close grip sternum chin-up/pulldown.
      >T.only deadlift for back.

      If everyone had this mindset, then 99% of all exercises would be obsolete. Certain exercises may seem awkward to certain people.

            vertical is just straight up better. i have 0 doubt that if you take two lifters, whoever has the higher OHP and Pullup total will look better regardless how much they bench/row

              Pulling vertical only will mess up your shoulders in the long run. You need horizontal pulls, even if they're as simple as bodyweight rows, to injury-proof your shoulder girdle.

          only doing pullups will give you bad posture and internally rotated shoulders. every pullup autist looks like a hunchback.

            yes all horizontal pull exercises are “rows” this does not mean the barbell row is any less shit of an exercise

        you can make "vertical" pulls more "horizontal" by extending the spine and leaning back with your chest up kinda like how most people do lat pulldowns
        the muscle activity is similar between barbell rows and leaned back latpulldowns or leaned back pullups and you can do lat pulldowns to the sternum or pullups to the sternum

        >yeah bro your delts are gonna be soooo huge if you just do tons of bench

        "vertical" pulls use the same muscles as horizontal pulls

    Cable rows.

    Seated cable rows are better than barbell rows.
    Barbell rows are only ideal for a small % of athletes who benefit from the full body nature of performing them with proper form.

    Anyone who just wants a bigger and stronger back should be doing cable rows and dumbell rows.

    Inverted rows. Lay back with your feet on something so you are fairly horizontal to your dip bars/pullup bars, pinch back and row, row, row your boat. Only downside is that it's difficult to add weight without a backpack or weighted vest, but I do a mix of AMRAP, slow half reps to pre-exhaust then AMRAP, super slow reps for max TUT, and switch my grips up. Good luck OP

    Don't let the retards in this thread make you feel bad OP. Barbell rows are objectively a subpar UPPER BACK back exercise due to the disadvantageous position it puts your body in.

    Opt for some sort of chest-supported barbell row or weighted inverted rows. If you're trying to hit your UPPER BACK, those two are better in every way.

      Sorry, but your shitty fearmongering advice doesn't apply to the rest of us, since we're not some ego lifting gay who injured his back ego lifting. Solution: Don't ego lift. Simple.

        some exercises are just more risky than others and it's usually smarter to avoid them, you can injure yourself even with warm up weights if you're unlucky

          Except for the fact that in this case, the lift itself wasn't the problem, it was the amount of weight that was the problem. Barbell rows are perfectly fine when you're not ego lifting 3pl8, dumbass.
          >and it's usually smarter to avoid them
          No, actually, it's smarter to just do them in a way that isn't going to end up with you being injured in the first place. Again, the only reason you got injured was because of your ego, and now you're trying to blame the lift for something that was entirely your fault. I bet if you tore your biceps doing curls, you would also start fearmongering about bicep curls, too, right? The problem could never possibly be you, right?
          >you can injure yourself even with warm up weights if you're unlucky
          Lol. No. I mean, maybe you could, since you're a weak, dyel gay, but that's not a problem for the rest of us.

      If you are doing 3pl8 with terrible form then you are gonna fuck up your spine, don't tell me your form was good because if that was true you wouldn't have a herniated disk

    Dumbbell rows with your offhand supporting your body. Literally actually targets the muscles and gives you way more ROM than a barbell.

    i have kind of a ghetto setup but it feels better than others. i do one hand dumbbell rows but in my opposite hand i use a baseball bat kind of like a cane and it balances everything, you can move it around easier than switching hand positions on a bench or whatever too
