All kinds of row variations are obviously a very important part of any training routine, however I have problems doing them with high intensity.
Whenever I row(seated cable rows in particular), at a certain point instead of reaching complete muscle failure, my ROM starts shortening more and more as the reps progress.
On the one hand I can still do almost full ROM for the first few ‘hard reps’ so it’s a shame not to do them, on the other, i’m not doing full ROM so I shouldn’t be doing them at all!
In either case, I can’t reach real muscle failure or close to it, which is kind of problematic especially with a routine that mandates failure on a certain(or all) set.
The only way to get the damn thing to touch my stomach is curl up and do exactly what Eric Cressey said is horrible for your shoulders in his latest set of articles.
Opinions or advice on when to stop or what to do about this issue?
