Smolov Jr. for Barbell Row

This may not be particularly useful for a powerlifter per se, but I didn’t know where else to put it. I think using the row would be a great way to fix imbalances with the chest/anterior delt. And having a strong back is never a bad thing and all around bad ass. Anyone ever tried it? Any reasons not to try it?

go for it

Lol, I haven’t but if you do report back and tell us how it went.

May be hard on the lower back, 'cause the isometric hold and all.

I do not see this working…

Wendler spoke about 531 parameters/loading working for upping his bb row (something about injuries meant he couldnt train much else for a spell)
