Rows

What are the pros/cons of doing bent-over barbell rows with a pronated versus supinated hand position?

Pronated grips may let your elbows wander, leading to more mid-back involvement. Supinated grips will keep your elbows in, leading to more lat emphasis. Supinated grips also recruit more biceps involvement so you may be able to do more reps.
