    Does T-Bar row hit the lats much? Thinking of doing that as my rowing movement, would do DB rows but its usually impossible to get on a bench on my evening workouts. Been doing T-Bars for a while and like them, but not sure if it hits lats enough.

    Personally, I prefer the Berezovsky performance of Liszt's Mazeppa-- a piece that in an of itself is a hell of a workout.

    I can't lift with music. It bars me from putting my full concentration in my lift. All I want to hear is my voice in my head.

    Even at my last meet, I would stand right in front of the speakers each time I was "in the hole"/"on deck" so the music would dampen my hearing when it was my turn to lift.



    Next time I'm just going to wear ear plugs.

    Not really, grips too narrow for it to hit the lats hard. More of a mid back movement, rhomboids and traps. You can do db rows standing or against the dumbbell rack. You could just do some pull ups.

    still cant do enough pull ups to make a set out of it. Probably 4 on the first set. Can row 32kg DB for 3 sets of 8-10, no idea if thats decent.

    Do more pull ups so that you can do higher rep sets eventually.

    Exactly. Do as many sets as it takes to reach 30. Next time try an do it in fewer sets.

    This is how I do pull ups. Set a number goal and do as many sets as it takes to get there. I tend not to go to failure on pull ups.

    Just out of curiosity, does this method eventually get you to a point where you can do 30 in one set? I'd like to be able to do that one day but I'm dying after about 16.

    It's increased how many I can do. Making all kinds of gains in my pull ups doing this method. Good for an extra rep a week or so.

    Decided to try a 500m sprint. I think my first 250m was 50% faster than the second. I was so dead by the end. As a result, my time was no different than my 500m split while doing 2000m. Was great for the cardio, however, I'll have to keep working on it.

    Spinach feta omelette is pretty standard in most breakfast joints. Gives you a chance to work in dem greens (as you might say) into your diet.

    What do you want to do? I spent a week there last year and did a lot of research before going so depending on what you're interested in, I could be of help.

    If it's dance clubs you're into, I can't help you.
