Dumbbell rows can be a delusional lift like doing shallow leg presses with the weight of a car. Doing them through a full range of motion without jerking limits the weight. Doing it crap fashion jerking the bell with lousy form will allow you to row a house size dumbbell. That gif at the beginning of this thread was actually decent form. Many guys delusionally think they are doing it like the gif.

True about most any lift though. I'm pretty tight with my form but sometimes I'll let it go for a few more pounds. Cool

I like the exercise but it's not very economical. good for burning some extra calories.

I only use as much weight as I can hoist cleanly and with a full range of motion. I don't see this as a power lifting exercise. But then, that is just my opinion.

i agree, for me rows are more about being able to hold the weight and feel a strong contraction at the top than about just moving weight.

I have used 65 lb. dumbbells for this movement, although I think my form was starting to suffer some. I have learned over many years of trial and error that often lighter weights and strict movements are much more beneficial then the other method of hoisting as much poundage as you possibly can.

I like to use strict form on the first two working sets. Then the last set or two I up the weight and put some power into it.

Best of both worlds.

For you guys doing 100+ on this exercise, seriously critique your form/motion.

I used to go heavy on these, upwards of 150 for sets of 5. .... of course with shitty form.

I dropped the weight significantly, hit sets of about 13 with 60-80lbs, WITH A PAUSE at the contraction. 

What a difference in soreness and definition. 

My advice, drop the weight here and make a pause at the peak of the contraction.

You think Pumpster gives a damn just lift as much as you can and drink milk after cats, makes you strong.

Powerlifter/Strongman here
75kg and not very lean, single digit but not bodybuilder lean
I row the 60kg dumbbells (heaviest in my gym, 132lb for the metrically challenged) for 20 strict reps. One arm rows here.
I also Pendlay row 140kg for triples. Not as strict as the dumbbell rows I find it helps to cheat a tiny bit but I am not humping the bar
Lats are not that wide but I have big fucking traps and a thick upper back

No kidding.  Pendlay rows with nearly TWICE bodyweight ... holy shit.  I thought I was hot stuff a few years back doing them with just over 1.4x BW.  Granted, I was a good bit heavier than 75 kilos (more like 110), but still ...  Shocked
