Figured I'd start a log. So, here it is.

Last 2 weeks has been bad for my training. Dropped at least 10 pounds from getting sick and not eating much, plus only working out a couple days in that time. This was my first back workout in the last 3 weeks.

Focused on middle back thickness today. Some day this week I'll add in wide grip pullups and pulldowns to a separate workout.


Old school t-bar rows
4 plates x 12
5 plates x 11
6 plates x 14
(training partner was late, had to wait for bar spotter to go heavier)

Barbell rows
135 x 8
225 x 10
315 x 15
365 x 8

Old school t-bar rows (finishing up)
7 plates x 12
8 plates x 7

Barbell deadlifts (I go light on barbell deadlifts. Because my legs are long, when I use barbells I'm forced to use my lower back rather than my legs. If I use a trap bar, I'm able to use my legs more effectively)
315 x 10
365 x 11
405 x 8

Row machine

210 x 15
230 x 12
250 x 11
270 x 9
->Drop set to 170 x 10

Seated rows
160 x 15
200 x 10
240 x 8
->Drop set to 160 x 10


My training partner recorded the last several reps of my 315 x 15 set. The weight felt much heavier than the last time I trained back, so I decided to bang it out for as many reps as possible. :tear:

Nice job, a little bit of bouncing going on in the video but it is towards the end of a long set with heavy poundage! Either way good job bro

Nobody reps over 315 pounds with full range of motion without some bouncing. But, thanks.

If you'd like to see some bouncing, watch Ronnie Coleman barbell row from Relentless. Terrible ROM too.

The person with the best form including very minimal bouncing is dorian yates, but remember he himself was close to 300 pounds and rowed in the 400-450 area, so pretty easy for him not to bounce, but considering that u rowed 315 at a BW of 220 ( just guessing) for 15 reps is awesome, and i think your form is good,
