    When I first started doing neutral grip rows I'd feel the burn more so in my biceps and forearms than in my back but that eventually balanced itself out. :dunno:

    How long have you been lifting?

    You want to pre exhaust your biceps so you can focus on back?

    Your biceps get pumped when you do deadlifts?

    You just need to learn to get a mind to muscle connection with your lats. When I first started out, I'd get a good pump in my bi's when I did back, now, I don't anymore. When you're doing your back exercises, envision in your mind your lats being mad swole and working as they should be. I think it helps. :dunno:

    Shoot for 3 sets of back pre exhaustions. Work up to 10 reps and then do a 30 second hold.

    Should do it for now.

    Row with your lats and not your arms?

    When you're doing rows you shouldn't be using biceps as much as you are, probably.

    Try and make everything from your elbow down just hang and focus on moving the rest of your arm instead. More than likely you're keeping your bicep flexed throughout the movement and bringing the weight too high up on your body, just relax your biceps.

    edit: and you'll more than likely have to drop the weight a bit in order to do this correctly

    1) When doing rows, make sure to keep your elbows in. Flaring them too much puts strain on the bi's.

    2) I like to start off with bent over single-arm DB rows to pre-exhaust. If you stick with light weight you can put minimal strain on the forearm and bicep and still get a decent upper back pump.

    drop the weight and concentrate hard on using your lats to pull the weight instead of arms.

    instead of pulling the bar towards you, focus on pulling your elbows back.
