I never understood how everyone had a bigger bench than row. I can’t find anyone else that actually is in my position, strict pendlay rows are the easiest thing in the world for me to progress on. they’re never hard, i can progress week to week and do that lift last after i’ve exhausted all my muscles and energy. My bench can be done early and ill always struggle on it.
My bench is 130 3x5 my row is now 162.5 3x5 and it doesn’t feel like it will ever slow down. i weigh 150.
I also started rowing only like 3-4 months ago, i started benching about 7 months ago. I started with the bar on both.
It feels great but it just doesn’t seem typical. Does anyone else have this experience?
Seems logical to me, the back looks like it has way more muscle. for me feels way more explosive than my chest muscles too.
