Well 0lbs. unless you impliment t-nations Snake Oi... errr I mean Anaconda protocol. Then you could potentially add 500lbs to your bench whilst getting to minus 3.7% bodyfat. Off course you can only buy this stuff if you prove your truly hardcore. I think this involves G4P at the t-nation HQ?

Default Meanwhile at T-nation the "3 best rowing exercises"....

Are actually 1 exercise with a slightly different stance and a smith machine row....

"2" row variations:




Not Going to bother posting the smith machine row. Do these guys actually get paid for producing this shit? And do people actually take them serious?

^^^^ I actually like the meadow rows variation a lot. Donʻt know what it is but it hits the sweet spot. Every workout Iʻve been doing Meadow rows and Db Rows.

John Meadows is a bit of a genius. He realized that he wasn't going to be a great bodybuilder (even though his physique is admittedly impressive) so he got into the salesman gig at Tnation. Now he's basically the most well known non-Olympia competitor around. More power to him. I think he's got some good info to put out, and there are plenty of suckers to pay up for lots of supplements and Ebooks.

Just to clarify, I am not criticizing the 1 arm barbell row at all.
But that isn't 2 movements.

They're more different from each other than high bar squats are from low bar squats. Or close, anyway. And yet, in plenty of big lifters' blogs and books and stuff, you see high bar and low bar specified individually, to produce different results.

In other words, why not do the same for meadows rows and 1-arm barbell rows?

Having tried both, I'm sticking with 1-arm BB rows for now. I don't consider them interchangeable. YMMV, etc.

I suppose you could say that it's a hammer grip v an overhand grip variation (as a DL would go, if you know what I mean, not sure what else to term the grip, since it's not a curl grip) and they'd have a different impact on the movement but, IMO, I feel that would be more to do with grip than the primary muscles targeted, so a stronger grip in one or the other variation would produce better results etc.

Plus the load is placed at a different angle to the body which does make a difference, though it may be subtle; one clearly to the side with the other below the bodyline.

Just a thought or two.
