    Was wondering how you guys do your BB rows, with a 45 degree angle or as close to parallel as possible.

    I do them with a 45 degree angle but I have read parallel is the proper way to do them.

    What advantages do you think parrallel would give if any?

    As close to parallel as possible. Someone posted a good article about why parallel is better, try and search for it.

    yeah, I have found that I prefer the feel of the underhand grip on the bb row

    Yates row to me works better than a parallel bent over row.

    I dont have any good back pics, but the amount I can row has gone up considerably since i started rowing parallel. And i can feel a some lat through my fat when i flex, i had nothing there before :o

    I'll have to give the yates row a try.

    if your not leaning over so that your nuts arent getting wacked, then the only other parallel position puts you so that a 45lb plate would chop your throat, and youd be on the floor not able to breath.

    grab the bar lower so that the plate is going towards your face and keep your head up. :dunno:

    no, it's not possible to hit the upper or lower portion of the lats. Someone may try to correct me on this, but it's ONE muscle and it's all going to contract at once. The upper portion is going to be the teres major, the lower portion is your actual lats
