    How Far Do YOU Bring it?

    When doing bent over BB rows how far or how close do you bring the bar to your chest? I do not tap my chest w/ the bar but some guy, training another kid at my gym told me i wasnt completing ROM.. He's always there with another kid when im there but i dont pay him any attention because his kids arent getting any bigger and he looks sloppy..

    What this means is that when we drop a ball and it falls to the ground, it wasn't the ball that moved (down to the ground), but the ground that moved (up to the ball)

    How is your grip? I guess because my grip is narrow the bar doesnt really need to touch.

    I use a grip as if I were doing a flat bench press and also touch at the lower stomach.

    You hafta bring the bar up to your stomach for 2 reasons:
    1. so you complete a full ROM
    2. if you bring it to your chest, you're using too much delts and not enough back.
    You're a funny guy, Sully, I like you. Dat's why I'm going to kill you lahst.

    When i perform it, my back is not parallel to the floor to avoid injury. I keep my back straight and arched in a position as if i am doing deadlifts.
