Row 405x10, you probably got no mind muscle coordination.
315X10 isn’t enough?
I don’t have a problem keeping my elbows tucked. I’m way stronger pulling than I am pushing. I can feel how useful it is to have a strong back for lowering the bar under control so you don’t lose your tightness and as a result lose your starting strength.
But I’m just not feeling like my lats are what’s actually directly responsible in any way for making the bar move the same way the delts and triceps are. Should I try to tuck my elbows even more or is the purpose of the lats just stabilization?

The more I arch my back the tighter my lats etc get, sometimes they even cramp when I bench. Its hard to use your lats at all if you lift flat backed.
You know when you do cable rows, or barbell rows, and you get the bar to your chest/sternum area and your back tightens up real nice, like you reached full range of motion?
I pull my shoulder blades together, arch, and then pull my lats together as hard as I can, and it just happens.[/quote]
I’ll just have to assume that I’ll feel it one day.
