hmm, you lift a box from the floor (deadlift, row), in the carrying process are many muscles involved back/shoulders and yes, the biceps. do you carry a box only with your biceps, therefore you must lift it much wider in the air than overarm parallel to your body.

but this topic about isolation work is interesting, maybe you know more examples for biceps, triceps and laterals.

OK. Here is the final argument for doing vertical pulling. Vertical pulling is the very best way to help you complete the annual CHINUP CHALLENGE! And February is less than 2 weeks away!
