Default cable low rows

I was just wondering if its best to do them with the single handle or the double handles. I feel like i have realy good form when i use the single handle but when i use the double handles i first have to lower the weight and even then it feels like im not getting good form. Mabey i'm holding the handles the wrong way? Should U hold them so your thumbs are facing upwards or inward?

I dont understand what your trying to explain. are you standing while doing these? (upright row?)

or are you talking about single arm bent over rows?

Mt bet is he is talking about a seated row with either the short cambered bar or the D-rings. I prefer the cambered bar myself, but damn the anticipation of knowing is really killing me.
Make my head stop hurting!!!

I think he is using a straight bar. bent at ends.
thumbs in would be pulling with upper back/lats
thumbs out - depending on grip width can hit mid to hi back, and bi's cause you are pulling.
yeah.

Wait, I just reread... I would recommend you use a straight bar instead.

Sounds like you are using a triangle? or a double stirrup?

I can't imagine you would be stronger with one arm verses two. I prefer the triangle myslef although this isn't my favorite excercise anyway.

Im sorry i was very unclear, sitting rows ( i still may have the name wrong ) but u sit on a bench that is very close the the floor and the weight is in two tower stacks and they have two seprate types of handles to choose from one which you connect both cables to the same one ( this way you thums must be facing up) or you can choose to put a seprate single handel on each cable
