Today I alternated T-bar rows and bench press. The goal was obviously to work some back and some pec/tris. But the pump in the forearms were killing me. It got to the point that it prevented a good bench workout. I.e. I could harldy straighten my arms and had to cut the sets some reps short compared to only doing bench without alternating in t-bar rows.
Will this pass? Will my forearms adapt? How do you handle a pump that’s limiting your workout? Was it a bad idea to begin with to alternate bench press and T-bar rows?
