So I guess rows really aren't that important then? Should I be prioritizing pull ups over rows? I just always assumed that since pull ups always seems to fall into accessory work that it was lower on the list then others. Someone should make a list somewhere of the priority of exercises for strength training.

No, I think they are very important. VERY. Just trying to put things into perspective. The question is what are they important for? Are they important so you can row a lot? Well, of course you want to progress and be as strong as possible on any exercise, but do you do rows just so you can be good at rowing? Or is rowing part of an overall balanced plan to be strong? And what is your way of showing that strength?

Anyway, all that aside I meant to respond to this:

I think I'm going to just have to man up and throw my ego aside when I do rows. Drop some weight and do the reps right. Well, I have some work to do I guess....
Absolutely. That's the bottom line, IMO. Don't be so greedy and take the time.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Barbell rows are just plain awkward for me but I sure love Dumbell rows, I feel them sooooo much more, I guess because there is only one side of the body to think about!!

i'm just the opposite Hops, i could never get the groove going with DB rows. i always felt it in my shoulder more than anything else.

once again i agree with Eric, pullups/chins should be part of the main group of exercises done to increase strength and size, not considered an accessory movement.
imo, if you want a bigger, stronger back (which will in turn help you get a bigger, stronger front!), pullups/chins and rows are essential.

and chins will build your bi's better than any curling movement.

just my $.02
You're not afraid of the dark are ya?

ok i have another question.

My fat ass cant do pull-ups, whats everyones opinion on an alternative.

should I just do wide bar lat pul-downs or should i use the pull-up machine thing that simulates a pull-up where you can offset your bodyweight making it possible to do them and work up from there till I can actually do them myself??
