I love rows, but sadly, that's not the problem. In fact, the problem is that I can't do deads with my working weight while I keep a straight back. It's not that my back rounds over, it's that I need to lean forward a bit, and I think this activates my quads more.
Anyways, derek, thanks for the tip, I'll try that next time. What about RDLs and glute-ham raises? Are those the most common exercises for stronger glutes and hams?
My 3-rep deadlift max is 165, which I can do without much difficulty. When I do 3x8, and I get 45s on the bar, that's when I really see a problem, especially after the first few reps. This wednesday, I tried 3x8 with 145, and it was by the end of the first set and the start of the second that I said, my deadlifts are shit, I better get some help on this.
If it's at all significant, I squat well more than I deadlift. My 3-rep max is close to 200, and I can do 3 x 8 with around 170.
