    Start with Weighted pullups
    +25x10
    +35x8
    +45x6-8


    Seated CG row
    170X10
    190X10
    200x8


    Bent leg Deadlifts :o
    205x10
    225x10
    245x8

    Bent over row
    155x10
    185x8
    205x6


    That's mostly it. After this I do some isolation exercises like widegrip pulldowns and lhigh machine rows along with some Biceps to failure (I don't work them for a couple days after this) Anything I could be doing differently?

    I've been doing this for a while...

    every other back day I do deadlifts
    half wide, half close grip pullups
    heavy bent over DB rows
    heavy DB shrugs

    Then I vary the rest of the exercises, sometimes rows, sometimes T-bar, whatever

    My back is probably the only thing I can be proud of at this point.

    Is there anything that can substitute for T-Bar. Only one of the gyms around me has one and I hate traveling that far just for back day.

    Otherwise, it sounds a lot like my routine

    You could do rack pulls instead of bent-leg deadlifts.

    I've never actually done that, would you recommend it as a major difference, or more of a "Mix things up"

    I think you should pm chris/purevl/ceaze/someone with above average exercise IQ if you want intelligent feedback.
