    uh...any other row

    DB row, cable row, etc.

    You can make a row apparatus with an OLY bar and a double-D handle

    Training regularly but no progress?
    You need one or more of these: more food, more weight, more reps or more rest.

    All you REALLY need is a bar and a corner. If you find it awkward gripping the bar this way and rowing, do them one arm at a time.

    One of the PTs in my gym always goes crazzy when he sees someone doing an old school T bar row. Claims it breaks the bars.,

    But then, that seems a bit more like a substitute for a seated row than a T-bar, just because of hand/arm positioning. I do these, though, and they certaily bake the rhomboids. Good call.

    To the original poster - have you tried these? I think they call them "Weighted Bench Pulls." They're great with dumbbells too.

    I love this pic, not only is the bench great, but it's neat how her elbows are out so probably targets the upper back more when they're higher like that.

    One thing I'm wondering about why we do these on incline benches as opposed to flat: could it be that most flat benches are just too low to the ground to fully stretch out our arms? I think a lot of benches are just designed for pressing and for safety reasons they keep them low, but for doing chest-supported rows, I think we want high benches to fully extend the arms.

    If you look at this similar row for example, you can see to create a high flat bench they actually tilted an incline bench with the low end on top of another bench:
    http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...arDeltRow.html

    Even that guy would have problems with larger plates though I think. Since you could get really strong at this movements (even though it's designed to limit lat involvement), I could see people eventually being able to row a couple 45s this way. But I think 45s would hit the ground so you'd need a reeeeally high bench.
