    pull the db more to the lower part of the lat/hip. focuses more on the lat and less pulling with the arm.

    imagine you have a barbell in your hand, and instead of overhand grip, use an underhand grip. Now do the same with dumbbells. I think that is what he was aiming at.

    start every rowing motion moving your elbow first, only bend at the elbow during lockout, that way you dont involve too much bicep. gonna do some back later today :wiggle:
