The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    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.
