They work great and make my back work but...

I feel like if I go too heavy, my form suffers...then if I go just slightly less heavy, I can do like 20 reps easily. Then when I increase the weight, my form doesn't feel right even though I can rep out a normal 10 times. It's like I don't know whether to do the easier version that seems to stimulate more, or the harder version

anyone else have this problem?

Easy fix...do them on the smith machine.

I think it's because your biceps get a pump, thus making them feel like they are doing more of the pulling.

I completely LOVE this exercise.   But I can't use it.  makes my shoulders hurt for weeks, preventing chest workout success. 

I did them 1-2 times a week for a month, got quite thick.   But chest was all screwy

i find different ways of doing exercises, regarding the 'strictness' of the movement allow for different feelings when training the muscle.

for me like to go really light with them- like plate and a half light at most. i use an underhand grip and nearly stand upright. none of this 45 bullshit. i lean forward and just let the weight hang until i feel it pulling on the bottom of my lats- if i cant feel this my arms are already to involved, and i hold this feeling thru the motion .go light like this and keep your elbows in and you'll be able to actually feel the pinch in the middle of your back from the traps right down to the insertion at the waist as you go thru the motion. im really trying to thicken that crevasse (sp?) that runs up the length of the back.

like i said, thats why i do the movement the way i do it. you could go a lot heavier and pound out big meaty reps and just work the area as a whole too. its doing what you want with the weight to get the desired result.

Try some light rotator cuff movements. I always do them before I train back, chest or delts.

45 degrees is how the exercise is meant to be performed........Yates bastardized the movement by standing up and rowing.

It worked great for him though,except that he eventually tore his bicep!  Wink
^^
TRUTH here, everyone thought he was "really using heavy weights" to bring up his arms, but he blew his arm doing BB rows, in the wrong form.

Worst exercise imo. Stick to deadz and t-bar rows off the floor.

If youre having from trouble use the cable rows, better stabilization because your butt is seated.

I'm with Meso and Wes.....body parallel to the floor. Or slightly...SLIGHTLY...hi gher....the way Sharief is doing them in that video is a joke...just do a shrug 

Also agree with that other post....BB rows are a bull Move with big weight, not a finesse move.

I have also developed a secret exercise that isolates lats and gives me good width

my secret lat exercise is doing rows on a hyper extension chair/seat/bench whatever you want to call it, like this:



you can't do nearly as much weight, and you need a healthy lower back, but it works like crazy.

no way dude, the weights you will use like that won't build true thickness. Ya gotta do 3 plates plus per side to get a real thick back...

i like to do overhand and wide-ish grip, this will allow you to cheat to some degree but still keep most of the tension on your back. finish up with some light weight cable rows (same grip) for 15-20 reps to burn out after bent over rows get too heavy

honestly i'd be less worried about my lower back and more worried about counterbalancing the thing and landing on my fucking face. being 6'3" doesnt help
