I've recently switched to Pendlay Rows. Liking them so far. Hopefully, they'll "carry over" to various other things, particularly deadlifts (of course, strength in general will do that, but y'know what I mean.)

And indeed, heavy shrugs and pullups/chins ftw as well.


Good article btw, JB. And congrats!
