Exercise Swaps – Bored? Hurt? Switch It Up! — I love both of these moves and use both often in my programming! But, if you’ve been doing standard barbell rows for a while now and they’re a little stale, or maybe you have some low back pain that you need to work around the chest supported barbell row is a great substitute! — Why it’s a good substitute: – works same main muscles – reduces load on lower back – reduces ability to cheat — As with anything you do miss out on a couple of things by making the switch: – you don’t have the load on the low back that can help gain strength (and thickness) there – you don’t get the secondary benefit of the static hold on the hamstrings reinforcing the hinge pattern – no cheater reps, I know, this was listed as a pro, but it depends on how you look at it. In some cases cheater reps are worthwhile (typically in the intermediate to advanced lifter training for hypertrophy) — Whether you’re making the switch to add some variation to your program or if you’re training around an injury/low back pain this is a solid swap. :) — Comment with your favorite swaps or if you want another post like this! — #back #biceps #barbellrow #batwingrow #lifting #backday #hypertrophy #strengthtraining #liftheavy #fitnessfreak #tipoftheday #workouttip #fitnessfam #trainer #strengthcoach #reformedathletes

I love both of these moves and use both often in my programming! But, if you’ve been doing standard barbell rows for a while now and they’re a little stale, or maybe you have some low back pain that you need to work around the chest supported barbell row is a great substitute!

Why it’s a good substitute:
– works same main muscles
– reduces load on lower back
– reduces ability to cheat
—
As with anything you do miss out on a couple of things by making the switch:
– you don’t have the load on the low back that can help gain strength (and thickness) there
– you don’t get the secondary benefit of the static hold on the hamstrings reinforcing the hinge pattern
– no cheater reps, I know, this was listed as a pro, but it depends on how you look at it. In some cases cheater reps are worthwhile (typically in the intermediate to advanced lifter training for hypertrophy)

Whether you’re making the switch to add some variation to your program or if you’re training around an injury/low back pain this is a solid swap. :)
