Why is it that when any one mentions doing supinated barbell rows, they say how Dorian Yates tore his bicep and it’s not a good grip for rows?
Is there actually any proof that that one incidient means the exercise actually puts more stress on the bicep to the point where it’s more likely to tear?
Because it’s illustrative, not because it’s what led to the conclusion that the supinated grip with a heavy weight being held is more prone to bicep tearing than pronated grip.
That said, if one is rowing bodyweight or less then I would guess that person doesn’t need to worry.
Sorry…you lost me a little in the first sentence Could you rephrase?
It is said about that movement because it is a representation of what can happen when using weights as heavy as he was in a movement like that. Someone not even moving weight anywhere near what he was will likely have little to worry about. [/quote]
