375lbs seems great Btb, but looking at some threads online people are saying 220lbs for reps is good. I suppose we'd have to consider form, use of legs, explosiveness etc etc. Or you know, just pull. But that's too simple to work!

Thread derail over!
Never a derail here.

I always want my Pendlay row max to be close to, or a bit above my bench max.

I just pull. I think a lot of guys baby the concentric too much, fearing the explosive aspect. I did this for a long time, attached to the bodybuilding style. On the bench press I do everything I can to get the bar away from me, so on rows I do everything I can to get the bar to my chest - within reason, and using good form of course. I explode.

My Pendlays look like the video below. I would post my own video but I don't think I ever recorded a Pendlay session.
