    pendlay rows vs bent barbells rows


    Are they the same thing? Or is the touching in the ground the difference? Which one works better if you've tried both, I've just done barbell rows.

    You get more shoulder extender recruitment (lats) out of regular barbell rows to navel, especially using an underhand grip and 1/2 bent over.

    You get more scap retractors (traps, rhomboids, rear delts a little) out of wider grip rows to chest, especially when flexed to 90 degrees at hip.

    They both have a place as Pendlay rows are meant to be done with speed, which really helps with fiber recruitment for bench. However, BB rows have more TUT and are a better mass builder.

    Depends on grip width and if you tuck in or flare out your elbows...
