Underhand and Overhand Grips
With the presses, it was the width of the hands that made a huge difference. That still with back exercises. However, the other major adjustment that comes into play here is the grip. Specifically using and underhand or overhand grip. If your main goal is to work out the lats, then an underhand grip is more beneficial. On the other hand, the exercises that use an overhand grip will target the middle back. This is precisely the reason that you might do an underhand row and overhand row in the same workout. Doing 3 sets of underhand rows and 3 sets of overhand rows is NOT the same as doing 6 sets of underhand rows. Take advantage of the grip to make the most of your back workouts. If you don’t want to create your own back workouts or are unsure whether they make sense, take a look at Grant’s Body Series program on Daily Spot.
