    Yates row

    Anybody here ever do the Yates row? I've never seen it done. I understand it's basically a bent-over row done with a supinated grip. The only pictures I could find of it being done are at this site:

    I've seen those before. A guy at the gym suggested them for my girlfriend to work her biceps.

    I have tried this before. I found it difficult to do. I couldn't get the form correct. Whether this had anything to do with the fact that I couldn't really feel it working, I am not sure... but that could be likely. Is it meant for your back? Like MA said, I was told by a guy at our gym to do this for my biceps.

    I've tried them cause i didn't like conventional BB rows at all.


    After trying the yates row...i don;t particularly like them either. DB rows are my forté.

    That's because they are a lot easier to grip, eh?

    I dunno, it's weird because I am stronger at chins with a wide overhand grip than a clser underhand grip. I guess I'm a freak or something.
