back development

hi guys,
ive been doing as part of my back routine barbell rows but in my gym they only go upto 45kgs. ive tried using one of the bench press bars with all the weight at one end (so i can increase the weight) but this doesnt seem to work my back as hard.
the only thing different is the hand positionas they are grasping the bar together rather than shoulder width apart.
any ideas?

    Project - I think you are confusing bent over rows and db rows. Bent over rows = with the olympic bar with weights either end

    lol sorry guys i should have been more specific. im doing bent over rows at the min but the weight only goes up to 45kgs. i could load an olympic bar with more weight but the main problem is having room to do it. in the gym i attend the free weights gets realy busy so there isnt realy room to use a big bar. one of the guys suggested that i could get the same workout from stacking more weight onto one end of the olympic bar and doing bent over rows that way. that way the rest of the bar is tucked out the way.

    i think the free weights section wasnt that well designed or they didnt realise how popular it would be.

    Chins Deadlifts and BO Barbell Rows for a thick back mate.
    Exactly, load up your bar and you watch them make room...
    When you hit someone in the back with teh bar I am sure they wont be there for teh next rep :)
