Someone just posted this on FB and I want to die.

Yeah you gained 80lbs because you'd "sometimes rather have wine". STFU.

How many of you guys do standard bent over bb rows?
Since I'm now lifting at home full time I am limited with what I can do in terms of equip so I've been using these a lot (I rarely did them when I went to a gym). I'm currently using 225 for reps but it just feels shit once I go heavier then that. O was at 225 for a few sets of 6, now it's 4 sets of 10, but if I add even 10lbs it just feels shit in terms of mmc, but the mmc is awesome at 225. Is this a common issue? I remember I quit doing them just because there are a lot of other rows that worked better for me but I don't remember having this kind of a threshold or sticking point.

I hate bent over rows with a passion. Only horizontal rows I do are either seated cable or something bent over with chest support. Shit just needlessly nukes my back. I like to keep the focus for those on my upper back.

Since you are at home, do you have a bench you can move around? Build a platform and do those Alberto Nunez seal rows. Thats what I plan to do.

Yeah I do those as well. Once I figure out how to set up my chin-up bar I will probably drop these altogether, but that's easier said than done. BB rows are like my 3rd movement.

I do them and it's so tough to isolate the movement to the relevant muscles, you start using momentum to get the bar up like every time it gets tough.

Yeah that was my first thought - that I must just be cheating. That's why I focused on just getting stronger at the same weight, but even after that it's the same. I've tried underhand grip and its a little better. Oh well, hopefully I can drop them soon anyway.

All back work is like that for me, I don't get how people work that shit out so hard.

I feel my back really well. My back MMC is on par with my arms. It's my shoulders that I suck at feeling.

Yeah, i have issues with the shoulders too, but doing one arm lateral raises with a cable feels great.

post #52240 of 57260
Yeah Ive soon banded db side raises a far hit in lieu of cables. Although the best thing I've found for feeling side delt is doing heavy partials for time where you just focus in constant tension, go for 45 seconds then pick up a light db and so full rom raises.

Ate 3000 kcals every day this week, with 250+g protein/day. Got decent sleep, pounding water, taking creatine consistently. Having a double espresso as a preworkout. If my bench doesn't move I'm gonna cry. Edit: worked like clockwork.

Also, NYC brahs can you rec a gym around Greenwich Village or Gramercy Park area that I could just pay to use once on Friday?

Dirty bulking is great if you know what you're doing. Quickest way to put on muscle. As long as you're confident you can lose the fat. Not something for noobs but if you've gone through a few bulk/cut cycles it's fine.
post #52243 of 57260
First day back in the gym.

I think I gained a few pounds over vacation. Cut starts in earnest now i suppose!
post #52244 of 57260
Yea this moving weekend is a refeed deload situation
post #52245 of 57260
NYC brahs, again, any gyms I can check out for one day of lifting on Friday?

Deadlifting 320, pretty shitty, so I'm totaled at 895 right now. That's a lot of weight to put on for a bulk. Might just stop after I hit my bench and squat goals, idk.

When's the RHET cut comp end?
