Can someone explain what the difference between these two exercises is and which one is better?
Also can someone post a link to a video of someone doing them with good form because im never sure if im supposed to just use my arms and hold my back straight or what.
Here is t-bar rows:
And here is HB doing BB rows
I find t-bars hit the lats more than BB rows.

I've never done T-bar rows, but I do BO rows. I like them. They hit my back really good.
Goals by January '08:
thanks second vid aint workin tho?
Most gyms have a T-bar row apparatus... Using a barbell in the corner, like in that first vid, is very old school...
They are differnet excerisises, I found BB rows kill my lats, and T bar obliterate my bis/upper back
Being a strong teenager means nothing.
My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.
Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
The only difference is the angle. If you're doing a proper bent-over BB row you should be completely parallel with the floor at 90 degrees. This forces your lats to engage more as your traps are put at a disadvantage. However, if you're like most people your traps will completely overpower your lats and you'll end up doing more like 45 degree bent-over BB rows at heavier weights.
Do which ever one you are worse at.
i dont think that first video would be considered tbar rows.... im pretty sure those are straight bar rows. on tbar rows the bar looks like a T with a pulley at the bottom of the T and you hold on to the top of it.
Dumbbell BO Rows and weighted inverted rows...you can look ghetto with your tbar rows or you can look cool and ghetto with a backpack with 110lbs on your chest doing inverted rows...
Chuck Norris suggest inverted rows and we all know what happens when you don't listen to him!!!
I guess they are, thats what i always called them until i saw a tbar row machine... because it has a long handle bar like a lat pulldown bar and you use a wider over hand grip and with traditional tbar rows, there is no "T" and you use a close neutral grip... wouldn't that be two completely different movements? kinda like benchpress and close grip bench press.
and wtf are inverted rows? sounds insane.
nvm i googled it, just always called those reverse push ups
