    Agreed. DB rows are superior in terms of ROM and muscle activation. In fact DB rows are so much better that I would actually consider BB rows to be a waste of time. Even row machines seek to imitate the DB row instead of the BB row.

    you literally don't need anything more for your back than deadlifts, weighted chins and curls

      suboptimal ROM, only useful when doing heavy cheat rows, otherwise DB rows or machine rows are better

      Would you rather do barbell rows or bent over rows? Do RDLs still build your back like normal DLs?

        never let that shit touch the floor
        you will build up your grip and forearms not to mention your traps/neck
        barbell rows blew up my traps once i started lifting 80kg and up
        i dont care about anything deadlift or similar exercises related, i would if i lifted purely for strength but i dont, im too lazy to load up that shit every time, rows you just load up that shit on the squat rack and you are good to go

          Are barbell rows the same as bent over rows? Sorry I'm just really retarded and Google is confusing me.

            i dont know, i would assume so
            like i said just keep the bar from touching the ground while being on a parallel position to it
            obviously this will be a hard thing to do if you want to go heavier, doing cheat rows instead but the principle is the same
            just dont let the shit touch the floor bro, this aint no fucking pendlay

            yes, but bent-over rows are a specific type of barbell row
            you also have yates rows, pendlay rows, and cheat rows (to varying extents of cheating)
            it's probably the messiest barbell lift

    >too fatiguing on the lower back
    >bar gets in the way of you actually being able to fully stretch your back
    >doesn't do anything for your back optimally like back extensions (erectors), close grip chins (lats) or wide grip pulls (the extremities) do.
    >calisthenics fags regularly mog with their back just by doing all the pull up variations and maybe inverted rows
    >got to bust out the straps for it to actually do anything
    >seems like everyone that loves them either do literal baby weight or they cheat the hell out of it and turn it into a weighted belly bump like the Coen rows become
    I never include it in any program. Anytime I did it would quickly get tossed out. I'd probably toss it in for a minmaxing powershitter

    Yeah hate this shit. Never felt my back fatigue.
    It's better to do chest to bar pull ups or sternum pull ups instead of this.
