    Do you guys do them overhand, underhand, or both? I was doing them overhand for a while and I just started doing them underhand and I experience pain in my radius.

    I don't know how to describe the pain really other than it feels like I'm torquing the bone. It happens in both arms and I have a feeling that it has something to do with my crooked arms (if I rest my arms at my sides with my palms facing forward, my forearms slant away from my body at a pretty noticable angle).

    Should I do my bent-over rows with DB's, stick with overhand or something else?

    I've tried everything from really wide to really narrow, but nothing feels comfortable :dunno:

    Edit: Sounds like overhand is the way to go...I liked underhand because I was able to use my biceps and do more weight :rofl:

    Yates style when I want to go really heavy, overhand for volume and lighter stuff.
