Diary July 13th 2019 A small change in back workout routine

My workout routine for back muscles have been mainly focused on barbell rowing on the bench for these 10 years or more. A good point about this prone position rowing on the bench is that stress the lower back is relatively mild. However, I changed a perspective about this exercise a little bit recently. I mean, rowing on the bench in prone position places your body in a very stable position, and in a sense, that is a good thing, however, if you look at this from other point of view, rhomboids and mid trapezius don't need to work so hard in order to stablize moves of scapulas. So to speak, in terms of engaging the rhomboids and mid portion of trapezious in the rowing motion, hanging the barbell from the body and pulling it would be necessary.

Therefore, I switiched the main exercise of my back workout into barbell bent over rowing recently, and I'm still incorporating the barbell rowing on the bench as a supplemental exercise. This is a small change in my back workout recently.
