    Yates row is the 45 degree one. Pendlay row is the row where your back stays arches and perpendicular to the floor and generally touch or rest it on the ground between reps. ( l think )

    They have their use. I use them myself as higher rep work so I can finally smash Pullups like a mad man.

    I had a play around with them on my new rings, but I agree with Doczenith, they aren't really good as they are pretty easy to do. May be good if you could add a waited vest etc, but I didn't bother adding them to my program. However i do them as a warm up exercise before I hit my pull ups, so they have their place as far as I am concerned.

    The second vid kinda regards them as a stepping stone to pullups, which might suggest they're no longer useful once you can do pullups. Not sure about that.....I reckon they're still worthwhile even if you're also doing pullups.

    I haven't done them regularly, but did 4 sets tonight and i love them...great for the upper back imo. I want to progress to the feet elevated style in the first vid.

    Do them slow and controlled, with your body in a nice straight line throughout, with a wide-ish grip, and you'll get some good back strength i reckon.


    EDIT - i don't like the grip in the second vid...i prefer slightly wider...hits the upper back better
    The first and only time i did them was about 14 years ago using a chin up bar. I grabbed onto the chin up bar facing opposite of normal chin up direction and another guy lifted my legs up to about his shoulder level, then from here i did inverted rows.
