Default question about rows

Hello i was wondering,

when you do rows, surely you dont train the stabilizer muscles around the spine??? just the arm muscles that you lift with???

Rows are primarily a back exercise.

I dont' think it was a statement about isolating the stabilizers, he just seems to be confused about the exercise and asking a question.

like ross said, you use ALL the muscles in the back, and the arms when performing rows.

yeah i know. it was a basic question which ross explained perfectly.

i was being sarcastic because of this post of his:

1. fuck everybody else, you are lifting for you!!! not them!!!!!

2. now here's what i did: work harder than everyone else and when you finally reach that day when youre stronger than everyone else, just push them down on the ground and say: "whos the strongest now motherfuckers? dont fuck with me beotches or youll feel the taste of steel, betches"

thats what i did - do that and everybody at the gym will like you!
this led to my sarcasm....

and yes, dave and ross are both on the dot.

the row is a compound exercise. it hits a lot of muscles together.

I agree w/ CPDave. When I do rows, especially JS rows, I feel it in my arms, and in basically all of my back. Was that the answer you were looking for, Arnold? We'll guide you however we can.

Dave and Ross are spot on and I can see Wolf where the sarcasm comes from (can't blame you).
