I look at 3 things when choosing an exercise:
3️⃣ Strength Curve
Today I want to talk to you about stability.
Joint stability is defined as the ability to maintain or control joint movement or position. Body stability, on the other hand, refers to the ability to maintain your center of mass over your base of support (staying balanced).
The bent over row isn’t ideal for building muscle because you are limited by the stability of your spine.I need stability to generate force and build muscle but my hips and core are being used to prevent me from from raising up as I move the weight. This does not mean that I don’t have clients doing bent over rows or I think they are worthless exercise but it’s more for the purpose of creating spine and shoulder health.
In order to build muscle, I prefer an external source of stability to put way more emphasis on the muscle group I am targeting.
