    Do you wear a belt? If not, wear one, it'll give you support for your back.

    assuming he's using correct form its not **** advice. if he has a weakness in his lower back then barbell rows will work it isometrically and then the pain will begin to subside. the plank and deadlifts would also help streghten the back.

    If he´s getting pain in his lower back, he´s obviously not using correct form. He´s stated it´s only with this exercise.

    No you don't "man up" when you get pain in your back unless you want to end up crippled. If someone had a fractured back your advise would be to deadlift and it will subside?

    Its a sign that your back or your form is not right.

    depending upon the type of pain. for example i dead until my back is in agony but i dont damage my back or get crippled. i do conceed though that my advice was poor since i dont know anything about him or his form.

    There´s a difference between muscular fatigue and ruining your spine.

    What kind of fatigue leaves you in "agony" when still doing the exercise?

    Marmeduke might be right or wrong. This guy needs to post a video. Barbell rows are very hard and often hurt muscles that you weren't expecting to get hurt.

    Sure but when you don't know its best to be safe than someone go and cripple there back.

    And sure but if your in "agony" as he said he is when he does deadlifts, then there is something wrong no?
