There's an ongoing debate among exercise physiologists regarding the
superiority of one exercise over another. Of course, there are so
many variables that it's impossible to say with any certainty if
the pulldown beats out the horizontal row. More often than not, it's
the effort one puts into an exercise which will determine its
efficacy. Almost any exercise for a particular bodypart will yield
results if performed with enough intensity. However, when examining
