Tip: The Landmine Row

This is the supported variation of the Meadows row. Very effective and more back friendly.

I like Meadows rows, which are usually done standing with a machine or a bar, but if you have a history of lower back issues, use a bench for support.

To do them, put a barbell in a landmine unit (or securely in a corner if you don't have a landmine) perpendicular to a bench and row just as you would with a regular dumbbell row. Once you've finished with one arm, leave the bar right where it is and just turn around on the same side of the bench and do the other arm.

Use straps when you go heavy or else your grip will greatly limit the amount of weight you can handle.
