My gyms DBs only go to 100lbs. after being able to row that for 20 reps, i realized i needed more weight somehow.
barbell rows just dont feel the same, i cant really rip at them and smash my middle traps. I do DB rows for trap and rear delt, not lats.
So i set up a bar like T-bar rows, with a bench in front of the plate side of the bar to hold on to, and used only one arm with a strap, pulling the bar up from between my legs.
Motherfucker, this exercise rules. I managed to work up to 6x25lb plates for 6 reps per side.
Today my upper back feels like hamburger, AND my brachialis and brachioradialis are sore as hell too.
I suggest you all try the one arm supported T-bar row. It's terrific.
PS, anybody know how much weight of the bar I'm rowing? I guess maybe 15lbs
