Always willing to learn :D
I like to lay with my stomache and chest on an incline bench and grasp a barbell directly below my mid to lower pecs and pull up towards my belly-button.This relieves the stress on the lowerback and helps keep a good proper form. This has done wonders for my back..like I told the old guy at the gym questioning why I put so much stress on my bqack when I lift, "I always forget an umbrella when I go to the beach, so I need my lats to block out the sun!!;p
I know you've all been waiting for THE RETURN
Pendlay rows are your friend. My back workout = Pendlay's, DL's, shrugs and face pulls
I do the bent over rows on the HS shrug machine almost every upper body day. I set the seat as high as it goes, use the bottom handles and lean up at about a 45 degree angle. I don't use much weight, just focus on squeezing my shoulder blades together. It feels like a bent over row/upright row combo. Since I'm on the machine already, I'll knock out a set of shrugs to make it a superset.
