over hand or under hand?
overhand = upper lats
underhand = lower lats
do both... I can do more weight upper but I get a better "feel" underhand
do you alternate sets or alternate weeks?
"All of the muscle fibers in the latissimus dorsi are virtually parallel, making the entire muscle function with the same action on the arm. This is a different situation from the two heads of the pectoralis major with distinctly different fiber angles and actions on the arm. You cannot train "parts" of the latissimus dorsi."
video in this article demonstrates an overhand grip...gracias
"It all depends on the position of the arms during the movement. Keeping the elbows close to the side of the body during the movement creates arm extension. If you remember that extension is a prime action of the latissimus dorsi, you will understand that indeed doing the exercise in this fashion does work the lats very well."
Doing it underhand with your elbows tucked would hit your lats harder.
for lat development I would do it underhand but for overall back development I would do it overhand because with your elbows out to the side the leverage of the lats is reduced so other muscles have to pick up the slack.
underhand = yates rows, as i've always heard it.
i like them underhand.
That's what she sed.
stop following me, mister.
i think i read somewhere that doing underhand with poor form is a good way to tear a bicep??
then again i row 165lbs so dont listen to me lol
Levrone says different
I'll listen to one of the best bodybuilders in history instead of some bodybuilding vid. Either way, I would do both for overall lat development.
that's what he sed
Dorian Yates > Levrone
Yates said underhand for lat development
Can't argue with that. Like I said, I personally get a better "feel" with underhand so it makes sense.
Yates does not need a parachute when jumping out of a plane. He simply spreads his lats and lands on the nearest convenient mountain top.
his back was amazing
went with underhand grip.
feels good man.
how bout alternate from back workout to workout, also use straps so you can pull more with your elbows and less with your hands, and stop when your elbows are even with back, going past that mostly just works the bi's
Underhand doesnt do shit but put a strain in my bicep tendon. I'll stick with overhand.
Both ways but i can't row shit for weight....185 for reps....
I do 8 overhand super setted with 8 underhand.
I did them underhand until I fucked my bicep in the ass
now I do them overhand only
How much weight are you guys using to fuck up your biceps.....Mine don't hurt diong underhand grip for 3-5 sets of 8-12 with 185, but i try not to activate my biceps at all during the exercise......
