What is a Bent Over Row
The bent over row, or bent over barbell row, is an effective weight training exercise useful for gaining strength and increasing the size of back muscles. A staple for powerlifters and bodybuilders, the bent over rows are often performed as an assistance workout that can help in improving the number of reps of your deadlifts, bench presses, and squats.
Reverse grip barbell row or simply Yates row (named after Dorian Yates) is an essential strength gaining workout useful for developing not only your back but also your arms and shoulders. When it comes to following a heavy back workout routine, you can do reverse grip barbell rows along with other exercises including low pulley rows, one-arm dumbbell rows, and standing T-bar rows.
