    What do you think of performing with an underhand grip? is the extra focus on the biceps worth the increased risk of incurring a bicep tear with a heavy weight (as a lower weight obviously won't hit your back as much)?

    I dont think so mate, i'd rather use the lift to build pulling strength and if you need to target biceps from an injury prevention perspective use another exercise like eccentric bicep curls etc.
    That make sense?

    Certainly does mate; Though I was considering it more to build some guns for the ladies!

    In terms of functional exercises for BJJ/MMA, would you recommend Bent-over Rows instead of One-Arm Dumbbell Rows?

    They are both functional. 1 arm rows you have a more base of support, barbell version greater challenge on posture. Both great movements and can be interchanged for variation or trained together in the same programme for me.

    try curl grip pulldowns on lat machine. pull just to the chin i find best to keep it more on the biceps than the back. good bicep move thats simular to the rows.
