bent over row would benifit you more,it uses a lot of stablizer muscles more than using the bench mate
That's the main reason to do good old bent rows... can shift more weight and stimulate more total muscle.

Bench rows I think are a supplemental exercise but not a main one.

and if you do bench ones have your head hanging over the end so you can breath, there should be enough room underneath to lift the bar...

no idea why that guy is being retarded (look at the picture, he's actually facing the wrong way)

If I was going to do them I would use DB's instead,

bench wouldn't get in the bloody way :D
Yeah was goin to say the same thing. Using a bar looks alittle restrictive and would be harder gettin the full range of motion and contracting.

Stick with the bend over rows :thumbup1:

A few years back, I had some lower back issues

I used to do these, but on and incline bench (30-40deg)

I used a straight oly bar and found them very effective tbh, they certainly isolate the back if done correctly, and you can't cheat either

good for a change IMO but standard BOR a more superior exercise
