      WRONG. You people get too hung up about form. Use huge weight and cheat the row like crazy, like a Kroc row. The point is to cheat to let you back do the work even when your arms cannot. Too many people waste their time in this middle ground of back exercises where they’re too worried about form to lift some heavy ass weight

        How the FUCK do I do these properly? I always wind up feeling it in my front delts, I'm not sure how I'm even fucking them up, no matter what angle I do them at, supported or unsupported

          It sounds retarded but I found it to be a mind muscle connection thing. You want to actively be thinking about your lats and upper back controlling the weight the entire time, even on the eccentric. You don't want the dumbbell to be pulling you downward on the eccentric. But if you just cant get them to work for you, swap out for another row. There are like a dozen of them that all work well.

          That's Kroc, he transitioned.

            you're doing them wrong. It's amazing how many times a day I have to post this particular piece of advice, but you have to learn scapular retraction and work on scapular mobility. This is not an arm exercise but people pull with their arms, which is why they don't feel it in their back.
            >do lots of work on scapular mobility, eg scap pushups, scap pullups, etc (look up as many as you can). Take them seriously and do before every workout
            >tuck elbow, don't flare
            >don't pull DB straight up, pull it to your hip in an arcing motion with your elbow remaining stacked above your hand
            >good mental cue is not to "pull", but rather drive your elbow back and up
            >have the motion be you retracting your scap, "crunching" your back, and broadening your chest simultaneously
            >don't let your shoulder roll forward at any point in the motion. keep it locked back and down. Don't shrug as you do the rep

            I'll give these a shot, thanks brehs

        Your back isn't working if you're cheating. You're likely relying on mostly leg drive at that point for momentum if your arms are also tired. You're just wasting time doing shit form and you wonder why your back doesn't grow.
