What is embarrassing about a body in progress? Just keep going on and don't loose your motivation. Is your nutrition getting better? Don't forget to eat (healthy) :wink:

Don't forget to concentrate also on your training. EAT IRON! :wink: I was focusing on my nutrition for a while too intensive, but lost my motivation for training and gained too much fat. Now, I am back to my old eating habits, which works best for me and I will increase the intensity of my workout sessions again. I will send you some 'embarrissing' pics of myself. You are not the only one with body 'problems'.

One arm dumbell rows, support one knee and one hand on a bench and row with a dumbell in the other hand.

Seated cable rows.

Pull Ups.

Forget it all and become a powerlifter. :lol:

one hand dumbbell rows are a lot easier for me, but do they have the same impact?
thanks so much for your suggestion, i'm totally unsure whether i train right or not :?:
thats the big disadvantage of training at home i guess...

No.

It depends on what you mean by alternative, though. Any rowing movement develops the back. Barbell row is among the top 3 movements for back - pull ups and deads being the other two.
There is no single exercise that has the same impact on strength, back width and depth as barbell row.

Why do you want to exchange it anyway???
No one said it would be easy.

Any luck doing pullups? They are great for your back

If they're too hard right now, try doing them standing on a chair and put as much of your bodyweight as you can on your arms

I've never done laughing pullups before. I'll have to try those out, I hear they are good for your lungs :)
