What is a DYEL exercise in your opinion?

For me it's the Pendlay Row. I've been to a bunch of different gyms and only seen a handful of people doing them and usually they are DYELs who have been memed into doing SL or something.

      Not him but I have a horrible lumbar region if I'm lax for a couple reps it'll hurt for days. Even with rowing (on a machine) I wear a belt so I don't accidentally round my back. The strength is there to diddly 400 and some change but the positioning feels unnatural I'm not used to holding by back that way for longer periods of time.

        Train your core, dyel

          I do RDLs now but strength doesn't translate well to endurance or vice versa past a certain point. Holding your back in place for the duration of a rep even with 400 lbs is a diffent game than holding your back upright for an entire day also training dorsiflexion in my ankles has helped a lot.

      I went to a crossfit gym for a week and left after seeing people use belts, squat shoes, and knee wraps for 2p8 squats.

        >squat shoes
        I squat more in flat soles than weightlifting shoes because it forces me to go low bar and parallel only, bad addition to your list

        squat shoes are great. they allow a more upright torso, which puts more emphasis on the quads, preventing "goodmorning" squats.

        Squat shoes just make sense to use for all squat movements no matter what weight you are moving. And people who do oly lifters should 100% always use them to get comfortable catching cleans in them.

    yes, pendlay rows for the dyels
    and ironically enough, regular bent over / yates rows get hated on online, but in the gym it's always the big (questionably not natty) dudes doing them

      What's even the difference between the two? I always assumed they're the same move.

        In bent over row the weight doesn't touch the ground because your torso is more upright (45 degree angle), not parallel to the ground.

        BO row targets the traps and biceps more.
        Pendlay row targets the lats more

        It's like the difference between deadlifts and rdl. With pendlays, you're not as concerned about the eccentric. Also The back angle is different

        It's on a continuum, I do barbell rows from the floor initially almost completely parallel like a pendlay row but I allow my torso to shift more upright during the later reps. Some eccentric control but it's not accentuated. The cue when it gets heavy is not so much consciously lifting with your glutes, but improving the leverages. You shouldn't be slamming your gut into the bar. This works out nicely because of the strength curve.
        Works the best for me, I tried all the barbell row variants; strict pendlay, strict barbell row/from a dead hang, cheated barbell rows etc. and this one is the only one that both allows me to move a lot of weight while also feeling my lats, had proper lats DOMS for the first time in ages (I do weighted pull-ups at least x2 a week) after the first time I made the switch.

        pendlay row is with back parallel to the ground and letting the barbell come to a dead stop on the ground between each rep.
        regular bb row is with a more upright back (e.g. 45 degrees) and the weight usually stays off the ground the whole set.

    By the same logic, OHP is a DYEL lift.

    Is this a DYEL exercise?

    Any lift where the first rep of the first set and the last rep of the last set looks the same. Dyel is a state of mind where you don't push yourself

    start position is almost right
    lower back needs to be straight
    upper back is good

    finish postion same deal
    tighter lower back
    upper back needs more vertical flexion

    pendlay has an old video explaining all of this and yet motherfrickers still can't do it right

      I do them on a 30 degree incline bench with both hands simultaneously. I get a much better burn in my triceps than doing this:

      Is this a DYEL exercise?

      Btw i superset them with rear delt flys, also performed on the incline bench

      I'm pretty proud of coming up with this combo

    That applies to every single barbell row movement, including t-bar. They all suck, they all have limited rom, and I've only ever seen dyels do any of them and never at higher weights. Cables and DBs are just better for horizontal pulls.

    all compound lifts. generally the smaller the guy, the more likely they are doing compounds. And the bigger and the more aestethic the guy is, the more likely it is that he only uses machines and dumbbells and does isolation movements. this is my experience lifting 12 years and observing gym clientele
