    Is having T-bar Rows and Bent Over Barbell Rows together in the same back workout pointless?

    I would say yes...

    Maybe you could use an nuderhand grip for one and a overhand for the other but its still 2 rowing movements I think one is sufficient..

    I agree with Hulk, my back routine consists of 1 rowing movement, 1 chinning movement and deadlifts. After them my back is worked to the max!

    why would you want them both in the same workout? Seems a little overkill to me
    half the time I have no idea what you're talking about. the other half, I'm not listening.

    Most people will tell you that it is overkill.

    If you were normally going to do 3 work sets of T-bar rows but instead you did 2 + 1 set of barbell rows, there would be nothing wrong BUT...

    The name of the game is progression, and mixing exercizes makes progression difficult to measure.tuttut

    Good luck

    i would just do one or another, if you dead and do pull ups as well, you definetly do not need both.

    my gym has a tremendous biangular row machine that does a combination of the two. You can really load up the weight and it is a very natural motion.

    I would use one for one work out and the other for next weeks session.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I would pick one and hit it hard. Like Mac said, you could alternate their use if you would like to use both.

    But, if you look at Dorian, he used many exercises for his back in one session. He did, however, use only 1 set to failure of each. Skip Lacour does a similar back workout.

    I am actually going to split my back workout in two. Workout 1 will be deads, shrugs and grip. Workout 2 will be chins, a row and biceps/forearms.
