I haven't posted on here in a while but i was curious what back exercise is ur favorite. For past month I have been doing deadlifts, bentover rows, and pullups and I'm looking to add another row variation.

My favorite is a low cable row with a small triangle attachment.

I can move a lot of weight for a good number of reps. Gets a good pump and i can really concentrate on the pull.

Thanks for all the answers. When you guys say T-Bar Row. Are you talking about putting a bar in the corner and getting a v shaped handle or using the machine?

I was referring to the handle on the bar in the corner

Pullups/Chinups
Band Pull-aparts
High rep high weight Kroc Rows
Strict dumbbell rows
T bar rows
Pendlay Rows
Facepulls
Prone YWTAs
Reverse dumbbell flies

And of course deadlifts, even though they're really more of a ham/glute exercise.

Deadlift is more a leg exercise than a back exercise since the muscles that workds dynamically in a deadlift are gluteus, hams and quads, your upper back only gets hit isometrically.
But to answer your question ->

Lying horizontal dumbbell or barbell row
Pronated/neutral pull-ups
Unilateral pronated/neutral hammer strength row
Barbell shrugs
Rear delt cable flyes

Before i ruptured my disc i only did free rows (bb row, db row etc) and tbh, today i regret that i didn't do chest supported rows since day 1 instead.
Why? Because they allow one to focus so much more on the upper back and they are MUCH safer since the low back is removed from the equation, and in a balance perspective they're superior since they are the direct opposite of a bench/chest press.

Sternum pull ups are probably my favourite. Start from a dead hang at the bottom and pull explosively. Gets a great stretch and contraction.

@NorIda well by most people's standards a pull up constitutes the chin going over the bar or forehead being in line, so I felt the need to emphasise haha

Do you guys think that Doing pull-ups everyday is bad? I just want to get better at them. Kane sumabat recommended it. There are strong body builders like Kai but he can barely do them so I don't think its all strength. Thoughts?

Like any exercise, it's to do with learning the movement as well. Also, every day seems overkill, your muscles need to recover. I tend to do them every other day...

Depends on the volume, intensity and how far you take the set/sets.
It doesn't sound like a good idea though.

@Rawsteel reading what you wrote made me reevaluate my choice of barbell rows.

My lower back had been getting pounded by doing heavy legs, heavy upper, rest, hyper back and other stuff the following two days.

I think I'll take your advice and ditch the unsupported rows in favor of chat supported t bar row.

Yea, the lower back gets put through ALOT in most programs, which probably is one of the main reasons to why it's one of the most injured areas amongst weightlifters.
Also, another good thing about chest supported rows is that they are easier on the central nervous system.

Pendlay rows and chin ups are basically all you need for the basics. Enjoy both of them
