The Performance Series T-Bar Row
Chin-ups and lat pulldowns will make your lats wider, but if you want a thick, densely muscled back, you need to do rows. The T-bar Row allows you to use a neutral grip—palms facing each other—which is the bio-mechanically strongest position to pull from.
This gives T-bars an advantage over bent-over rows, in which the palms are turned down. Because you can use both hands, you can load more weight, and that gives the T-bar an edge over dumbbell rows, too.
- Plate loading at the front of the input arm provides true variable resistance.
- Dual hand grips allow user variety.

Why This Exercise is Important:
