Hey, Jedd Johnson here from DieselCrew.com. I had many people recently talk to me about wrist and elbow pain when doing straight bar work. So, what we’re doing today is the bent-over row.

#1 – Bent-over Row Using Globe Gripz
I’ve got the Globe Gripz, and this is a good option for you as it snaps right onto the bar.

The thing that hurt me is the straight bar position. This tends to pull the wrist and force me into supination, with the palm facing the sky position. This position is not good for me, so I try to avoid it. The Globe Gripz puts me into a slight supination position versus an extreme supination position, which is more comfortable.
#2 – Bent-over Row Using BackBull
I have another alternative tool that works well, called the BackBull. It will move you even further out of that extreme supinated position. There are two options, which are slightly supinated or slightly pronated. Do what is more comfortable for you. Approach the bar, snap the hook, then perform the rows.

Both of these allow you to get good quality back work into your routine. It tests your grip but doesn’t test your range of motion. Let me know if you feel better, have more intense workouts and optimize your gains when doing these exercises. I hope this video has been helpful.
