How Far Do You Lean Over For Bent Row?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I prefer DY's 70 degrees. Try that sometime too. Go to MD's site and watch Kai Greene's training vid with him.


  2. I do them at 80-90 degrees. I would actually rank BB rows at this angle was an excellent core workout as well as back workout.

    IDK how you people get a full stretch at that angle unless you have short arms.

  4. I do the Pendlays. Even with people who I see do them (which is not many in my gym), most don't perform them in an explosive manner, or deload the weight for each rep as in a deadlift. This is a good video showing this:



    The beginning shows a regular row, the Pendlays start at about 2:30.

    What I find most effective for really adding mass to you back and rear delts is this:
    -get into a quarter squat
    -bend over at 75 degree angle
    -pinch your shoulder blades back and keep your chest and head up
    -bring the weight up to touch your top abs
    -squeeze and flex your back for a split second before releasing the weight in a controlled fashion.

    Start with lighter weight and you will see your strength increase and your back muscles really begin to explode.

    Hope this helps,

  6. I trained back today, the way i do it is one arm dumbbell rows on a slight incline and row to my waist for my lat recruitment, then do two arm bent over dumbbell rows at 90' degrees, focusing on thickness

    Well, I am 5'9" with 29 inch legs, I am super stubby, and I don't really have a problem. Having said that, I find for back, for me, that getting a really good concentric movement is really important. It is where I think, and I was a prime candidate, that people make the biggest mistakes when it comes to back. And this exercise, I can feel the contraction better than any other back exercise. I also personally enjoy the hamstring stretch.

  8. its a slight lean but most importantly its a pull not a yank or a momemtum jerk. Bend knees arch back and tighten lower back
