Yes. This is what doesn't make any sense when lifters say that lots of rows and big lats are good for balancing out pressing volume. Both just lead to internal rotation. I think strict rear delt work like face pulls are more effective for that purpose.

When you bench pl style there is a lot of lat involvement.

I had one bicep vain at the end of last cut. Hoping for at least 3 visible veins total in body.

Can't wait to get my crockpot when I go home in the next couple of weeks.

I got a rice cooker. It's nice but it makes a fucking mess, the top steam thing bubbles everywhere.

some cooking pics from the valentine's day weekend:

Started the gf with some appetizers of oysters, tuna croquettes, and lobster sliders



Then I made her favorite dish called naengmyun,



Made the broth out of chicken stock and a dashi packet. Used sirloin instead of brisket because Wholefoods had a sirloin and lobster tail deal going on and i figured if the meat was cold and rubbery the cut wasn't super important. I actually got converted to liking it after my gf added a ton of vinegar. It's like a noodle version of salt and vinegar chips. Add some spicy mustard and it's actually one of the best cold dishes i've ever had.


Meanwhile, she made me ramen gnocchi (a david chang recipe)



and Korean BBQ



Close up on the ribs



Then sunday we had all the leftovers. What a good weekend.

Engaging/locking down/flexing the lats/whatever you want to call it does help keep the upper back from rounding by helping resist spinal flexion and by keeping the bar path close to the body.

Yeah the lats keep the bar close to the body which just makes the lift more efficient.
