    Never understood why people do this exercise when you have chest supported rows where you really go to failure with more rom and no limiting factors like lower back + safer.

      so, I do the chest supported rows, I prefer them since it feels better but I try not to use the chest piece until I go to failure, is that a good idea or retarded? my thinking is that it's just there for safety and without using it, I activate my lower back more for more lower back gains. I probably look like a massive wierdo doing it

        Your gym doesn’t have an adjustable bench?

          Mine doesn't. There is a cable machine that let's me get full ROM though.

      This. I recently started doing chest supported rows and high rows and my back and rear delts have been detonated.

        is that bad or good? and are you saying that chest supported rows/high rows are bad for you?

      If your lower back is a limiting factor for this exercise, your deadlift is too low. That simple. You people don't know shit about basic training, basic strengthening, basi programming + look like shit, but somehow still want to post your shitty takes.

        BB row is a great exercise. If you don't have high spinal erector fatigue from elsewhere in your program, they can be fantastic. If you do, then choose a supported row variant. Most people suck at doing them, but that's a different issue entirely.

        Ironic I hope.

      Powerlifters don’t do or recommend this exercise, bodybuilders do. Powerlifters do Pendlay rows, so what are you talking about

    I've just accepted the fact that some people aren't supposed to exercise with certain patterns. I can squat ass to grass for 10 reps with xdlmao2pl8s but if I put half a plate on barbell rows my lower back is gone. Meanwhile some guys just gorilla their way through rows with zero pain but can't reach parallel on high bar squats. Just do what works for you basically. I saw Jujimufu recently saying he despises the bench press, even a fitness nut like him finds obstacles with common movements.

      I can row 3pl8 and it feels great because I have relatively short arms, but squats/deadlifts are comparatively snap city tier for me because I have long legs
      you have to find the exercises that work for you

      it's not true though, it's pure selection bias.
      if you overcome your discomfort, you will be just as adept in rows as in squats after training seriously for a few months. we are supposed to overcome ourselves.

        I'm not talking about weaknesses or muscle imbalances, those obviously need to be addressed, but about movements that just don't work well with your anatomy (not to be confused with exercising with poor form and discarding the lift because of it).

        If bench tends to strain your shoulders but db bench doesn't, what's the point in continually pushing on bench telling yourself 'i'll get it one day!'

        Retard take. Also you are supposed to rotate exercise variations to avoid overuse and to grow every area of the muscle equally

    I can't fucking stand having to support the bar the entire set in a bent over position. I don't think it's a lower back issue, since I love RDLs. The standing BB row just feels awkward and is too easy for your form to break down. I prefer pendlays.

    >T. Never heard of a lifting belt.
    I use this as a way to minimalistically train hams and glutes, also i pause at the top and lower the weight really feeling the lats working. Helps me a lot to build overall mas and some strength (helps me carry heavy stuff to impress my gf and to carry my gf)

    lmao stop doing squats and deadlifts before bent over rows.
    God I hate beginner programs that say "just do pendlay rows after squats and deads"

      This.
      Just do a squat and some hammstring isolation to work your lower body with the row, then next time do a pull up variation, and do leg extensions, or a quad biased squat like front squat, elevated heels squat coupled with a deadlift variation like romanian or a good morning to work each muscle group properly without any interference.

    It works for me so I do them. My lower back used to hurt when I had shit form and tried to ego lift. Now it doesn't and I'm still seeing gains
