    Best type of Row?

    Looking to add something in for my back.

    Currently doing -

    Deadlifts 3x5
    BB Rows 3x8
    Weighted Pullups 3x8
    Cable Row 3x8
    Wide Grip Pulldown 2x8
    Close Grip Pulldown 2x8

    Usually alternate between the pulldowns.

    Looking for something to replace the BB rows. I see people doing BB rows arched back/flat back, see people doing Pendlay rows, see people doing T-Bar rows, see people doing DB rows.

    Just wondering which is the best type of row (Barbell or Dumbbell) for both mass/strength, that hits mid/upper back.

    Could you also include a video showing perfect form?


    Thanks.

    Barbell Rows or Pendlay Rows are great. You need to be doing one of those in your routine for the best Upperback Improvement. It doesn't really matter which one though, you just need to do some type of heavy rowing movement.

    Heavy cheat barbell rows for overall body development, strength and conditioning. I rate them as high as squats and deadlifts.

    Unless you are huge to the point that you need to focus on lagging rhomboids and teres group, just pick one and do it. Not really a 'best' version.

    try db one arm rows, can be easier than bb to isolate lats
    Every aspiring lad wants to be a bodybuilder, but by George, nobody wants to elevate these burdensome weights.
