      Ok but if you do low weight you get zero upper back activation without going to like 30+ reps aka cardio

        then go mid weight are you retarded???????

        I never do them, too high risk of going to snap-city.

        literally impossible unless you're egolifting hard (which means you deserve your trip to snap city)

          What the fuck are you talking about? It's one of the easiest movements to cheat on. Just swing the weight up with your hips.

            That's the entire concept of the Pendlay Row - using your entire body to prepare Olympic lifters with the first pull off the floor.

    Pendelay rows are the way to go, but most of you can’t do them with okay form so just fuck up your spine on regular barbell rows.

      T-bar row's range of motion is a fucking joke unless you use smaller plates. I have a ~6'4 wingspan and the ROM is still meme tier if I use 45s

    There's unironically better ways to do this movement without stressing your spine. At higher weights, you don't wanna add more load to your spine every workout (lower back management) especially if you do heavy squats and deadlifts in your routine.
    Chest supported row machines are the best for these. Or SEAL rows, but that limits the ROM. Or do them with a hex bar. Or do them while your chest is being supported by the elevated edge of an incline bench like a Helms row except with a barbell.

    chest supported db rows are safer and more effective

    Pendlay rows are extremely safe and easy to do correct form on since the weight rests on the floor between reps. Barbell rows your grip strength starts fading and you overcompensate

    I'm replacing dead lift with roman chair back extensions, is a good a idea?

  18. 3 weeks ago

    Barbell rows are based. Obviously this board is full of ego lifting DYELs so a movement like this that actually requires full control through the movement is going to not going to be their favorite. They just slap 2 pl8s on it and use momentum to lift it then complain that it hurts their lower back. If you’re doing proper form and a weight that you can actually control, there’s no better way to activate the combination of lats, rhomboids, traps, and rear delts than a bent over row.
