    Close Grip Pullups Vs. Chest Supported Rows and Dumbell Rows

    Which of these 3 is better for adding mass to the back?

    I am thinking dumbell rows or chest supported rows. Though I can't say close grip pullups are bad. I do both a row and a pullup in routine. (In about 10 minutes too)

    Out of all 3 I would definitely go with chest-supported rows, without question. But personally I had really liked supported rows a lot. Far more than DB rows especially.

    in my experiance, i prefer db rows, they seem to thicken my back up big time.

    Don't have a pic. But its kind of like doing bent rows at 45. Except the weight isn't going up and down, it arcs from a pivot point. The one I used had a narrower grip then I do bent rows. I like bent over rows, but eventually I want to either do db rows or supported rows for my lower back.

    Edit- Know that I think about it, tis probably more like a T-bar row. Similar angle, weight moving in an arc.

    Here is a good picture of the EXACT supported row that I use. I vary between underhand and parallel-grip rows. Really blasts the hell outta my lats. Talk about a great back exercise.
