    What do you guys use for your bent-over rows? Currently I use the pre-set bars. But they only go up to 120 and I'm up to 110s on those so I'll need to move on.

    I'm guessing most people just use a bar and plates?

    225-245 for 6-10 reps depending on what I did before.

    Sometimes I want to focus more on squeezing the weight up and using stricter form so I'll drop the weight some.

    i had a question about yates rows. When i do them im almost parallel to the floor, maybe 10-20 degrees from parallel and i pull them up to my stomach. I see some people at my gym though they are almost straight, their backs kind of like that / and they drag them up their body to the belt buckle. which one is better?

    Yeah how loose your form is plays a large part in the weight used. I try to stay close to 90 degrees but with yates rows you tend to be a little more upright.

    When doing them overhand I keep my back parallel to the floor.

    I did the yates rows for the first time recently. Was about 30 degrees above parallel.
    Only got to 185 for 5.

    I've been meaning to try the pendlay rows. BB rows usually fuck up my lower back for some reason, so I've been sticking w/ DB rows on one day, and chest supported rows on my other day. I love the CSR
