I have tried Bent-Over Barbell Row but feel I am too stiff in my hamstrings to perform it correct. Moreover, it just feels uncomfortable (not that it is too heavy).
In the confines of a full body program the Pendlay is one of the best back movements. However I will occasionally spend some time on the Chest-supported row as it helps me ingrain the feeling of how a properly pulled row should feel in my back. It greatly assists my Pendlay row form and have seen the same thing work with a couple other guys.[/quote]
I like Pendlay row. Is it ok to perform pendlay row in a rep range of 8-12?

Are you doing everything for 8-12 reps? Even abs and deadlifts? I disagree with that approach. Also, discussing rep range without discussing sets or frequency is only telling a fraction of the story.[/quote]
I do 8-12 rep with all exercises except deadlifts, squats and abs. Deadlifts and squats is 3*5 + 3 warm-up set. In the other exercises I do 8 rep first week, 9 rep second week, 10 rep third week and so on. If I can do all the rep when I’m on 12 with good technique, I increase the weight and start over at 8 rep rep.
