thanks Monk! I think Pendlay's make an ideal accessory lift to deadlifts, especially if sticking point is off the floor. They have taught me how to build up alot of thrust from a dead stop, as pendlays are supposed to have some explosiveness. I really like doing the 8-10 rep sets and think it helps alot.

And for today. Quite ambitious this challenge is. I did a 135x50 before and it was real tough. I'm rooting for you. And , if you fail I get 10 points! But I don't want them.
Thanks Chris!! I remember Steve once said that the row is really the cornerstone or foundation to building up big numbers on the big 3 lifts, especially deadlifts. I never really used to like rows until my deadlift started making headway.

Will be starting the challenge shortly. I know for sure I will have it in 2 sets, and if I make it to 40 reps I should be able to gut out the next 10 somehow. It all depends how light the 210 feels right off the bat.
