    Barbell rows is not an isolation exercise.
    No one can tell you what that weight traslates to for Neutral grip pulldowns.
    Don't limit yourself to just one bar.

    I'm all square on BB Rows....know the form...just getting used to do really light weight. I thought I could do at least 135 but finding 65 lbs TOTAL is challenging, but as they said I guess it is because it is an isolated exercises unlike DL AND I am new to it.

    Instead of starting a new thread (which I could and maybe would be better) I wanted to ask here about doing neutral grip pulldowns.
    Specifically:
    1) If I can do 110X12 or 135X7 for wide grip pulldowns what that translates to for NT pulldown.
    2) Which bar to use from the pictures about.

    DL is a compound lift. Your using your legs a lot when you DL so those numbers have little to do with a BB row. BB rows are a very hard exercise, it's sucks cause when you watch someone like ronnie do them it looks like cake, till you do them yourself.

    Your just not used to the exercise. Your strength will jump a good bit the next time you do it.

    Use the bar...then start adding weight. If youre db rowing 65.... you will bb row somewhere around 130...

    While we are on the subject thought I would ask about NT (neutral grip pulldowns) v Wide late pulldowns.
    When doing NTs, you use a V-Bar like this
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]242183[/ATTACH]
    or this
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]242182[/ATTACH]

    or this
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]242184[/ATTACH]

    or this
    [ATTACH=CONFIG]242185[/ATTACH]

    Which?
    If I do 110X10 wide...what does that translate to with NT?
    LIke the first one. It's hard to say what weight you will use. Just focus on using your back and not your bi's. You can make weight feel as heavy as you want if you do it slow and proper with a good squeeze.

    Thought this thread was about BarBell row? I don't see it anywhere in your post. Or does BB stand for somethin else?

    start with a low weight maybe 95lbs and work up to a comfortable weight with good form. do you like to do straight sets or pyramid up?

    started a topic BB Row Question

    BB Row Question

    Never done this before, curious what weight makes sense.
    -When I do T-Row...I do 60X11,11,10
    -When I do Close Grip Cable Row...I do 80X11
    -When I do 1 Arm Row...I do 65X11 if this helps as a reference
Working...
