The hammer strength version seems to look better and trendier but is it ???
I know theyre practically the same excercise and both work the same muscle but the good thing I like about the good old seated row is the stretch you get on the lats on the eccentric phase...I probably sometimes lean too far over.
You`re probably all going to say to alternate between the two ? opinions please on what you all prefer ( that is if you`ve used both variations ).
Same goes for all hammer strength machines in general like plate loaded lat pulldowns, shoulder press, bench press etc.. Most of them have a better range of motion eg..lat pull comes down in an arc motion, bench press arcs and comes together at end of rep like a dumbell press etc....Do you guys think it makes much of a difference ???
