    I use the shit out of the high/low rows, incline bench, and shoulder press

    usually after my main barbell lifts for high reps

    I'll do them for the 3rd or 4th exercise usually for 12-15 reps, never under 10.

    yeah I usually hit them for 15-20 reps near the end of a workout, great way to finish things off

    whats hilarious is there are always people in there using entirely too much goddamn weight on them with barely any range of motion, then they act like they're badasses. Fuckers.

    I rarely use them. If I do it'll be incline chest, chest supported row, and pec-deck (forward and reverse).

    I'd say every week I work in maybe one or two machine movements.

    The incline plate loaded thing is good, so is the low row.

    The incline is fucking hard as fuck to lock weights out on. Not sure why but I have a huge problem locking shit out on it. I do the HS stuff for 12-20 reps.

    i use the multi grip row machine. hammer strength makes some pretty good shit for shoulder and back. i esp like how they use plates rather then weight stacks.
