Hard to say..., the contraction is different. I believe that a good back workout has 3 'ingredients'; a chin/pull down, a row and a deadlift/hyperextention. No need to throw a dozen of movements for total development.
yeah. I know and i have done very simple workouts myself. My workouts are not rocket science because i like you channel my energy on the meat and bones exercises. I do however believe BB rows are the best for thickness and width. Having worked lower back to a degree last night i still donīt have a Problem with rowing 1 day later. I think doing back then legs is worse. I also love BB Pullovers they really work chest and back. Feel my lats with them more so than with cables. Itīs the concentration, Zane philosophy which i integrate in my Training. really drag the Bar over with my LATS..concentrate and feel it.
