    My experience too, but I'm forcing my hands in a position it doesn't like unfortunatly.

    I mighy try it with an EZ bar, never did that

    Yes, straight bars will hurt your wrist, but certain machines allow for a good underhand grip and ez curl bars are good.

    Keep in mind bent-over rows with palms up targets the biceps more as well so you might need to take that into consideration to work around arm day.

    I tend to agree with block or rack pulls for ya. In another post seen you, @350lift get more lat activation with dumbbells, have you tried meadows rows or 1 arm barbell rows?

    Love meadows rows, but I like compound lifts which is why I was thinking barbell for upper back and dumbells for lats some upper back and further range of motion

    I like Pendlay rows for upper back a lot. Four sets of five is killer. For me, personally, I like the reset between reps because I feel like I get more back involvement and less leg drive.

    Those have to hit lower back alot if you dont have a strong core.
