when doing bent over rows, is it better to use supinated or pronated? i know supinated would work the biceps much harder, but would it take any work from the back away?
Do they feel "easier" that way?
i honestly havent tried supinated yet.
I find supinated-grip rows weird and unnatural... the same way I find supinated presses odd and awkward. Keep in mind that the bent-over row is the antagonistic exercise to the bench press, and the closer it resembles a "reverse bench press" so to speak, the better.
Of course, I'm not saying you always have to do it that way, or that antagonistic exercises are a must, but it's worked well for me, and many coaches have backed up this idea.
pull to lower sternum, upper abs
Supinated grip rows:
pull to lower abs, belly button
well see i was thinkin since i do about 5 sets or so, just maybe alternate back and forth.
I like my bent-over-rows like I like my chin-ups . . . supinated.
