Hitting Biceps with Rowing?


#1

Anyone got any good ideas on how I could really hit my biceps while doing underhand grip barbell rows. I feel that I hit my back, but is there any certain movement where I could bring the biceps into the lift?


#2

WHy would you want to do that? Sounds like a recipe for a biceps tear to be honest, if youre using decent rowing weight that is.


#3

yes, why would you want to do that?

chin-ups involve more biceps than pull-ups.

i guess that translates to horizontal plane pulling as well.

most people have more trouble recruiting their lats than they do recruiting their biceps.

Just a thought to see if it would help the biceps grow at all, guess I'll just have to up the weights while doing my biceps work. I just want to catch everything else up to my back, was having back problems so I was on a good plan for my back and it somewhat outgrew everything else, but I know if I stop working my back it'll just got back to how it was. Thanks for the input though.

Op,

There is nothing wrong with direct arm work.

Actually I think you should check out a thread titled:Another small arm thread. Good reading for you and might help you grow.

I'm too lazy to post a link as you were probably too lazy to search. lol No worries.
