    Overhand vs underhand barbell bent over rows?

    How do they target back and other muscles groups in contrast to the other? Which is better?

    Overhand makes you use the upper back to stabilize the weight while underhand lets you pull with lats more simply but with compromised mobility.

    I'd do overhand to develop the rhomboids etc.. and underhand to give lats a burn.

    Thats partially true.
    Where the upper arm/elbows travel make a difference wether under or over hand grip and where the bar is pulled to.
    Also upper body positioning more upright or bent over more.
    If the elbows stay more to the sides and pulled low to the waist then lats get a good hit.
    If you pull higher to the chest with elbows more out away from the body then upper back gets good work.
    Bio mechanically the curl grip is a safer movement at least for the biceps.

    Yes. I was presuming pulling to be to the stomach level. That's just the only way I imagined to compare under/over hand grips for bb rows.

    Probably not enough to matter unless you’re an advanced lifter. Just pick the one that feels better for you.

    I'd think it's a much better idea to get good at rows before adding on a lat accessory.

    I was just exaggerating. I don't think it's something I should worry about as I've never seen anyone partake in underhand rows.

    Ah gotcha.

    I tried for a little with a barbell, dumbbells, seated cable row and chest supported row machine and I just couldn’t get into it. Felt....wrong.
