is there really a difference since you're only twisitng around the forearm.
unless he meant where to place hands for better lat development, like wide grip or close grip?
edit: cool feeling, to come to an epiphany while writing a reply.
the width of hand placement will put more emphasis on biceps, narrower, more biceps...I think, I remember ceaze writing about it.
anyone ever use this bar? i love it
on the pulldown, palms facing away, wide grip hits the lats more..
hands close together/palmsfacing you = more bicep..
this big guy at the gym used to tell me when i first started out that, the wider you hold the bar the wider your lats are going to get , i don't know if he was right but i've always been holding my bar really wide since then
Yep i go wide and it seems to be workin for me
I usually start out wide, and end up closer by my last set. I've gotta get the most out of whatever muscles I can to get that last set out.
That's the only bar I use on pulldowns or seated rows. Otherwise I'm doing pullups, bent-overs, etc.
hmm, i'm going to give it a try on seated rows too
i've never liked that little dinky bar/handle-thing that everyone else uses for seated rows
