From what I understand, are rows with your hand on your knee, instead of a bench.
I tried them yesterday, and loved them. With a little bit of cheating, and trying to explode, while making sure I hit my lats, I feel that I hit them pretty damn well.
Interestingly enough, my glutes are sore too, due to the type of form I was using, and the little push I gave with my legs.
Personally I feel that this exercise will be a great addition to my arsenal. For me, they seem to top regular DB rows for lat activation, and overall body involvement. I can see these being a huge plus for athletes, the movement just seems very very “functional” (hate that word) to me, working the body in a way that hits multiple groups in the way they were intended, while calling upon your core to stabilize the weight.
I dont think Ill be doing DB rows with the support of a bench any time soon.
Anyone else like this exercise?
