    Did you by any chance post this on other boards?, I swear I have seen this a couple times today, lol.

    Anyway I like the old BB Bent Rows regular Grip for my Lats, but that is just me, I feel it more on my lats then the reverse grip...

          I do those on occasion, but I feel that most reverse grip excercises put too much stress on my wrists...But yes those do work well for forearms.

              My wrists don't allow the reverse grip w/ a barbell, although I used to be able to do them on a Smith machine - worked pretty damn well, from what I recall...

                I like to alternate. One week I do regular grip and the next week I do reverse grip.

                  You ever notice powerlifters who tear biceps, its always the one palm up. Screw reverse grip. You cant use any kinda weight without fear, or stress on the wrists. PLUS you can just overall go heavier with the overhand grip.

                      I wondered about this as I cant turn my palms face up due to limited rotation in my elbows - my left one which had a fracture of part of it is the worst for this as its natural rotation is about as far as you need for an ez bar

                      So I cant do any reverse grips properly or straight bar curls -

                      Am I really missing out on something?

                        Reverse Rows

                        Dorian quit doing them when his bicep tore while reverse rowing...of course, I think he he was using like 385+...I had his Blood and Guts video till a buddy "borrowed it" a few years ago and now "can't find it"-
                        I've tried em a few times...I think you get a better contraction with the reverse grip, but I don't know if that is worth the risk of a torn bicep....

                          I've been doing them for over 10 years without injury, etc.

                            I have noticed the more weight you use - in absolute terms - the easier it gets to do damage.
                            I have popped a hamstring deadlifting twice now - both times when repping 220kg - whereas with a lighter weight at the same intensity - no problems.

                            I think this is why we only run into problems with things like reverse grip rows, behind the neck presses when our strength passes a certain point - that is the ability of our connective tiussue and joints abilities to cope with an unusual and unnataural load.

                              I think it's a wonderful exercise as long as you don't go crazy on the weights. I, like alot of others feel a better contraction in my Lats with the Reverse Grip, but I don't use 300+lbs on them. That's just asking for trouble. For the most part, everyone knows their limitations. Just be smart with the weight you use and focus on the muscle being worked. Remember, Lee Haney(8 time Mr.O) who had one of the greatest backs & Lat spread in the history of the sport only used 225lbs on Barbell Rows. He said several times he could have gone much higher, but he didn't need to. He said stimulate the muscle, not annihilate.
