I have recently started using from last one month. After getting up from beginner level, I am moving to alternatives of few exercise. I am asking this to know about One arm dumbbell row alternatives. Recently I asked one of Gym friend and he suggested me go through this website of one arm which looks me really helpful. Please suggest me some other alternatives you have tried.
When you say alternatives, are you looking for exercises which also isolate one arm? Or exercises that mimic that movement?
Since I'm not sure which one you're referring to, I'll list a few exercises that mimic the movement and I'll specify if you can do them with one arm or not.
- T-bar row
- Cable row
- Hammer grip seated row (Can be done with one arm)
- Hammer strength pull downs (Can be done with one arm)
- Bent over barbell row
The one-arm-dumbbell-row is a compound back exercise. It works out similar muscles to the barbell/pendlay row. http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/BackGeneral/DBBentOverRow.html
There are many isolation exercises for back (eg. Reverse Fly, Pull-over, Chins) but for a compound back exercise look towards:
- Bent over/Pendlay Row
- Literally anything here under "General Back": http://www.exrx.net/Lists/ExList/BackWt.html#General
