    This makes a lot more sense, although I don't really see too much a necessity to do this on a smith machine compared to just using a DB.

    A bar only able to move in two dimensions would hardly work for rows at all, I would have figured. Huh.

    Well, a one armed row only really needs to move up and down, so it can be done on a smith, I just don't quite see the advantage the smith has, unless you just row the weight and let it go sailing past you on the top portion.

    Hmm. I don't really see the point of doing them explosively either. If you were really keen on moving weight from the ground fast and explosively, you'd do a clean or a snatch or something.

    I usually do explosive reps as my first workout then i move on to traditional- i do this because explosive reps can help you build more power, strength and speed, as well as burn more fat--all because they increase the number of fast-twitch muscle fibers used during the exercise.

    On a semi-related note, a friend of mine does one-armed cleans and snatches. With a barbell.

    He's pretty crazy.
