useing a diffrent grip the bb row is still effective
 
i would like to know if bb row can be used with a one overhand grip and the other in a underhand grip and still be as effective,this is what i have been doing as i fined it allows me to handle much heavier weight.Any advice from the experinced lifters of mab would good.:)

I don't recommend that approach for a row. I would consider it slightly dangerous, potentially to one bicep or the other. Perhaps someone else can chime in here...

Use straps and a double overhand, or double underhand grip. A mixed grip should only be used for deadlifting training when 1RM strength is the end goal. (Meaning Bodybuilders could use straps and DOH)

At some stage in this article, Jim Cordova talks about grips in barbell rows -

stop trying to re-invent the wheel. the underhand grip causes more bicep use. its a back exercise, use your back.
