    When I started lifting, I would do b-o rows with my back practically parallel to the floor. Then I learned that you should be closer to a 45 degree angle from the floor (keeping your back straight/arched - not rounded). Then I see this...I realize it's a lot of weight, but this guy looks like he's almost standing straight up. What's correct form?

    The title of the video can be quite misleading (Yates Row 315x6)...

    I always did them at 45 degrees to the chest. You can also do upright rows, but he isn't close to doing that either. :dunno:

    90 degrees or 45 degrees?

    I find that doing 90 degrees holds me back because my lower back stressed more than my lats.

    over there, no here
    i thought yates was supinated grip, 50 deg angle.

    if youre going to stay as verticle as that vid, try one of those hammerstrength row machines, they seem to work that motion better, esp at the bottom of the lat, since your pulling down from above.
